Good morning,

The latest trends provided by our weather team suggest that Hurricane Matthew will not have any significant impact on Morris County at this time. Overall confidence still remains very low on specifics due to continued model disagreement.

The latest model guidance has taken a significant trend southward with the track. Based off the recent trends, there is only a very slight chance for wind gusts over 30 mph and heavy rain in excess of an inch.

Based on the current forecast data, we are not planning on issuing any further updates unless conditions change.

Have a great day!

Good afternoon,

We remain in regular contact with our weather partners who are closely monitoring the track of Hurricane Matthew. It is still a little too early for our weather team to give us specifics regarding the potential impact to Morris County, as there continues to be quite a bit of uncertainty with the track of Matthew as it moves through the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast.

The more favored solution would keep most of Matthew out to sea, with the more-adverse conditions staying to our east, however some stronger wind gusts up to 35-40 mph are certainly possible. These winds would likely reach Morris County Saturday night into Sunday. Some significant rain is also possible, but guidance varies widely between as little as .50" to as much as 2-4" for Saturday and Sunday. The latest track shows a move a bit further west, which could result in slightly more significant conditions in our area. With this information in mind, we know that all this can easily change over the course of the next couple days, and our overall confidence at this stage continues to be low.

We will continue to monitor Hurricane Matthew, and issue an additional briefing as we move closer to the weekend.

Stay tuned!
