BLOG: Hurricane Matthew continues to pull away from SC coast

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

The new forecast track that arrived from the National Hurricane Center (NHC) Wednesday at 5 p.m. continues to pull Hurricane Matthew away from Charleston, SC Saturday night. 

If this forecast verifies, it would result in a huge improvement of weather conditions for the NC coastline. 

But before we all start high-fiving each other, it is important to understand that numerous computer projections continue to insist that Hurricane Matthew will take a path much closer to the NC coastline.

Thus, all interests in weekend weather along both North and South Carolina coasts should remain at the highest alert until more confidence in Matthew’s final destination increases substantially. 

See the accompanying picture for the latest 5 p.m. forecast track from the National Hurricane Center.
