Matthew battering the South Carolina and Georgia coast

>> Saturday, October 08, 2016

Hurricane Matthew is absolutely battering coastal South Carolina and Georgia this morning, and I am afraid the results will be pretty devastating on the South Carolina barrier islands south of Charleston. 
For our area, we will continue to have the moderate to heavy rain shield on the NW flank of Matthew overspread the area for a large portion of today. The lightest rain totals will be in our foothill areas, but from roughly I-85 and points south and east, 2-4" of rain are possible. 
Winds will be an issue later today with NE winds gusting over 25-30mph at times. That might bring down a few trees with saturated ground conditions in place. It will remains fairly breezy through tonight and tomorrow. 
Much drier and cooler air begins to flow in here tonight, and the weather setup looks fantastic tomorrow through all of next work week. Each day will feature plenty of sunshine and highs will be in the 60s and 70s. Morning lows will actually be quite cool with many days beginning in the 40s.
