The many oddities of “Matthew”

Hurricane Matthew was not only one of the most destructive storms in North Carolina history, it was one of the oddest. For starters, Matthew made landfall in October- well past the “peak” of Atlantic Hurricane Season. Matthew also became the southernmost Category 5 storm ever recorded in an Atlantic Season while pushing through the Caribbean Sea. Matthew also had an unusual satellite representation, seemingly “connected” to a persistent blob of thunderstorms along its northeast edge. These oddities (and many more) are explored in great detail in our WNCT9 First Alert Weather documentary “Matthew: Rising Waters”. To see the complete show, click on the link below.
