West Coast of Florida Safe from Matthew?

Here in the Tampa Bay area, we've been watching the foretasted track of Hurricane Matthew more intently over the weekend and into this week.   At first it appeared that the entire peninsula would be spared but as the cone of uncertainty has shifted more westward and the storm continues to intensify, we've paid even more attention.

That said, we seem to be in a better position to only receive some additional rain and wind but nothing that should be damaging.   On the west side of the storm potentially even could suck some of the moisture out of the air according to local meteorologists.

We feel bad for Haiti and what the Bahamas may endure today and are concerned about the impact to coastal Carolina later in the week.

I continue to have the Weather Channel on and keep an eye on some of the weather Tweeps I follow.
