Matthew = Wilma ???

Matthew has an chance to follow a similar track as Wilma and have about the same strength. Computer models are split on the exact evolution of Matthew. The usual, reliable computer models take the storm into Central America and weaken the storm. The newer computer models are following climatology this go around and make Matthew a West Coast of Florida problem.

Here is the bottom line:
- No tropical threat for the next 6 days.
-Pattern has changed for the worst. Several possible tropical threats exist.
-Increase in moisture next several days
- Flooding should become a concern next week
