Hurricane Matthew Update: 6:15am Friday

Here is the latest forecast for Hurricane Matthew.

The eye of the storm at 6:15am CDT:

And, here are the Doppler wind measurements. The winds just off the coast are as high as 120 mph. As the image below indicates (click to enlarge), the catastrophic winds are just 17 mi. off the coast.

Continue hurricane precautions ahead of the the storm and for about 40 mi. behind the eye.
