    Matthew strengthened from a Tropical Storm to a Category 5 Hurricane in 36 hours. SoFla is clearly in the cone for Wed-Thurs next week.

    I'm thinking of boarding up Tuesday and road tripping out of here.

    Hurricane Matthew weakened slightly on Saturday morning to a still-ferocious Category 4 storm after topping out Friday night as the Atlantic’s first Category 5 storm in nine years. Matthew put on a spectacular and wholly unexpected display of rapid intensification on Friday, strengthening from a tropical storm to a Category 5 hurricane in a remarkably short period of time—just 36 hours. It’s a good thing this unexpected rapid intensification burst did not occur as the hurricane was approaching landfall in a heavily populated area, with a population unprepared for a catastrophic hurricane strike. There have been other storms that have intensified even more rapidly from tropical storm strength to Category 5 than Matthew, though. For comparison, Hurricane Wilma of 2005 and Hurricane Patricia of 2015 accomplished the feat in 24 hours; Hurricane Felix of 2007 did it in 30 hours; Hurricane Rita of 2005 and Hurricane Andrew of 1992 did it in 36 hours;

    Wait until it turns north. Us Northeast folks may have issues as well depending on the path.

    Scary stuff. Hopefully some of the mountainous areas it will be going over break it up a bit and it goes east after turning north.
