Watches and warnings

The government of Curacao has discontinued the tropical storm watch for Curacao.

Summary of watches and warnings in effect

A tropical storm watch is in effect for :

  • Aruba
  • Colombia/Venezuela border to Riohacha

Interests elsewhere along the coasts of Venezuela and Colombia should monitor the progress of Matthew. Interests in Jamaica, Hispaniola, and eastern Cuba should also monitor the progress of Matthew. A Hurricane Watch may be required for Jamaica later today.

At 800 am AST (1200 utc), the center of Hurricane Matthew was located by an Air Force Reserve hurricane hunter aircraft near latitude 13.8 north, longitude 70.3 west. Matthew is moving toward the west-southwest near 14 mph (22 km/h).

A turn toward the west is expected later today, and this westward motion with a decrease in forward speed are forecast through Saturday. A turn toward the northwest is expected Saturday night or Sunday.

Data from the aircraft indicate that maximum sustained winds have increased to near 105 mph (165 km/h) with higher gusts. Additional strengthening is forecast during the next 48 hours, and Matthew could become a major hurricane later today or tonight.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 45 miles (75 km) from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 185 miles (295 km).
