I wanted to provide the latest regarding Hurricane Matthew and his potential impacts in our area. Based on the current forecast information, we will get some rain - upwards of 3.5” - but nothing we haven’t seen on a seemingly more frequent basis. Per the Hourly graph, we will begin seeing rain early Thursday with the heaviest occurring overnight into Friday morning. It is also during that time sustained winds and wind gusts increase, but again, nowhere near the level of a tropical storm. Lastly, Michael, not a coastal storm for us, the Tides are a non-factor. Any flooding taking place will primarily be from rainfall.
We will continue to monitor and keep you posted.
