Hurricane Matthew technically “wobbled” its way through the Bahamas on Thursday placing its path just east of the South Florida coast. Chief Meteorologist Jeff Berardelli explains the wobble responsible for saving Palm Beach County from disastrous damage.

The original path was expected to take the Category 4 storm just 40 miles east of West Palm Beach, 30 miles east of Stuart and 20 miles off Vero Beach.


Instead, Hurricane Matthew wobbled through Andros Island, Nassau and Freeport in the Bahamas and moved further east. This placed the storm 64 miles off West Palm Beach.

The eye ended up just 45 miles east of the coast of Vero Beach early Friday morning.

As of Friday evening, Hurricane Matthew is a Category 2 storm with 110 mph winds. The storm is expected to make a loop back towards Florida next week.
