move away from the Windward Islands tonight, and be over the eastern
and central Caribbean Sea through Friday.

Maximum sustained winds are near 65 mph (100 km/h) with higher
gusts. Strengthening is expected during the next couple of days,
and Matthew is forecast to become a hurricane by Thursday night or
Friday.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 185 miles (295 km)
primarily to the north and east of the center.

The minimum central pressure measured by an Air Force Reserve
Hurricane Hunter aircraft was 1002 mb (29.59 inches).

RAINFALL:  Matthew is expected to produce total rainfall
accumulations of 4 to 8 inches across the Windward Islands and
southern portions of the Leeward Islands through Thursday.  These

Rainfall totals of 1 to 2 inches are expected farther to the north
into the northern Leeward Islands, including the United States and
