Matthew Now a Category 5 Hurricane…Tropics Update 10:40 p.m.

Matthew has now been upgraded to a category five hurricane by the National Hurricane Center. Any more intensification with Matthew will be very difficult in the coming hours because of how large the tropical system has become. The larger a system becomes, the more energy is required to hold it together. Matthew will eventually start moving northward, out of the Caribbean and into the Atlantic. Many are monitoring to see how soon are late the turn happens because that will likely help determine how close the the east coast it will come. Current models are still generally agreeing on no major U.S impact.
