Staying offshore keeps the east FL coast on the weak side of the storm. As long as he stays small hurricane forces winds should (hopefully) not reach us. Guess the models are seeing a stronger ridge. The forecast for Matt has become this snake like path of wiggling back and forth between the islands. I knew the straight N thing wasn't going to hold, but honestly assumed a weaker ridge and a curve to the east after Haiti. The slow down in forward motion hasn't helped as its given time for ridge to build.
