10:12 AM ET — October 4, 2016

As of the 8:00 AM ET intermediate advisory from the National Hurricane Center, the forecasted track has the eye of Hurricane Matthew less than 50 miles from the east coast of Florida by Thursday night.

UPDATE #1
12:30 AM ET — October 4, 2016

GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Last month Hurricane Hermine, broke the 11-year old record of a hurricane not hitting Florida.

Now the Sunshine State might be in for its second hurricane of the season and it could literally impact the majority of games for Week 7 with the latest forecast track.

As of 11:00 p.m. ET on Monday night, things were not looking good for the state as the cone of concern or error has now included the majority of the Florida peninsula in the advisory issued by the National Hurricane Center in Miami. This comes on the heels of the 5:00 p.m. ET advisory Monday afternoon that shifted the forecast track to the west.

The advisory indicated that hurricane force winds extend 40-miles out from the center and tropical storm force winds extend 185-miles out from the center. Matthew was packing winds of 145 m.p.h. according to the advisory.

With all of the changes to the forecast, Florida Governor Rick Scott declared a state of emergency for the entire state.

Also due to the recent changes in the forecast, FloridaHSFootball.com will not be publishing its normal Top 10 Games of the Week feature due to the anticipation of game cancellations.
