Tropical Storm Matthew forms and enters Caribbean
The disturbance we've been tracking since Friday was upgraded to Tropical Storm Matthew today, just as it crossed the Windward Islands and entered the eastern Caribbean Sea. There will be two posts on it today, the first covers the storm and forecasts, while the second one will explore a haunting similarity that Matthew's forecast track has with an infamous storm from 1954: Hurricane Hazel. Thanks for reading and sharing!
