DISCUSSION AND 48-HOUR OUTLOOK
------------------------------
At 800 AM EDT (1200 UTC), the center of Hurricane Matthew was
located by NOAA Doppler weather radars, and an Air Force Reserve
Hurricane Hunter aircraft, near latitude 32.5 North, longitude
79.8 West. Matthew is moving toward the northeast near 12 mph
(19 km/h), and this general motion is expected to continue today.
On the forecast track, the center of Matthew will continue to
move near or over the coast of South Carolina today, and be
near the coast of southern North Carolina by tonight.

Reports from the reconnaissance aircraft indicate that maximum
sustained winds have decreased to near 85 mph (140 km/h) with higher
gusts. Although weakening is forecast during the next 48 hours,
Matthew is expected to remain a hurricane while the center is near
the coasts of South Carolina and North Carolina.

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).  A private weather station at Folly Beach reported
a wind gust of 76 mph (122 km/h). Strong wind gusts are also
occurring well inland in South Carolina. Orangeburg recently
reported a wind gust of 55 mph (89 km/h).

The minimum central pressure recently reported by an Air Force
reconnaissance aircraft was 962 mb (28.41 inches).


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
WIND:  Hurricane and tropical storm conditions are expected to
continue over the warning area in Georgia and South Carolina
this morning, and spread northward elsewhere within the warning area
through today.
