Tropical Storm Matthew Forms in the Caribbean

Posted on Wednesday, September 22, 2010 at 5:00 PM MST

MIAMI, FL -- Tropical Storm Matthew has formed in the southwest Caribbean. According to the National Hurricane Center, at 8 PM, sustained winds were about 40 mph with higher gusts. The storm is forecast to strengthen before it goes over mainland Belize. Forecasters are unsure exactly where it's going to go right now, as the disintegration of a sub-tropical ridge is what is going to steer the storm. It all depends on when the disintegration happens. I'll be tracking the storm over the next week or so, and will be primed and ready to deploy to Southwest Florida for an intercept if the storm heads this way. Stay tuned for more updates as the storm progresses.
