Hurricane #Matthew has now made landfall in #Haiti as a category 4 hurricane with sustained winds near 145 mph. This makes it the strongest hurricane to make landfall over Haiti since Hurricane Cleo in 1964.

In addition to exceptionally strong winds near the centre, Matthew is expected to bring a storm surge of 2-3 metres to the coast of Haiti, the Dominican Republic and Cuba. Rainfall totals of 500 mm are widely expected and up to 1000 mm in mountainous areas. This is likely to result in severe flooding.

Is the second intense rainfall band off to the east typical for hurricances? Doesn't seem to be the classic "armed spiral"?

Keen stargazer?

You're in for a treat as the Orionid meteor shower peaks tomorrow night and it looks like plenty of clear skies for most of the UK.

The Orionids are a remnant of Comet Halley and at its peak you could see up to 20 shooting stars per hour. Orionid meteors are known to be very fast travelling at around 41 miles per second, and typically on the faint side, although with clear, dark skies you still have a good chance of spotting one with its persistent, long trail.
