The GFS is one of the models NHC uses to forecast the track of the storm. If you look at the past projections the forecast track near term has been moving closer to FL and later shifting away from a NC landfall to turning back out to sea. This is due to multiple models including GFS. The European model has in general outperformed GFS on this storm and also turns Matthew back to sea after FL. Don't focus on one model but rather look at them as a group and see if what they are telling you in terms of the atmospheric conditions driving the storm makes sense. I hope GFS is wrong but time will tell.
