Per the current forecast, beginning Tuesday morning Matthew is shown to gradually reduce max sustained winds. As a general statement, when major hurricanes lose top end speed does the overall wind field expand in a similar fashion as when a tropical system becomes extra-tropical, although not likely to the same extent? On Thursday evening, Matthew is currently forecasted to be about 220 statute miles east of the Palm Beaches, and currently TS winds extend outwards 207st. mi to the NW and about 115st.mi to the SW. It won't take much of an expansion to put the Palm Beaches into a TS Warning area. I know much can change but was just curious how the wind field may change. Thanks all!
