RICHMOND, Va. -- Hurricane Matthew will likely make landfall in Florida as a major hurricane. It is then expected to turn northward.

A sharp turn to the right (out to sea) is shown by many tropical and global models, but there is still the possibility that Matthew could parallel the coast as far north as Hatteras before moving out to sea.

"It will likely travel up along the South Carolina coast before veering farther to the right. Confidence is growing in this scenario, which means no significant wind for Central Virginia," CBS 6 Mike Goldberg said. "I wouldn't let my guard down along the Virginia coast, but the signs are 'better' for there as well. We will see some rain Saturday and a few gusty breezes, but a significant impact to RVA is unlikely. Of course, stay in touch in case anything changes."

We’ll continue to monitor how the model data is handling the large-scale pattern, and will update on the changes in the track of this dangerous storm.
