Tropical Storm Isaac continues to weaken as it approaches the Caribbean

Natural gas daily chart Forecasters urge caution as storm churns in Gulf
Sandra Phillips | 15 September, 2018, 21:03

Sustained winds on Tuesday afternoon approached 105 miles per hour, making it a very strong Category 2 storm, though it was expected to gradually weaken over cooler waters. Maximum sustained winds are near 35 miles per hour (55 km/h) with higher gusts. Although Olivia is expected to move over the islands as a tropical storm, it could still bring worse impacts than recent Hurricane Lane to some areas, the center said.

A duty forecaster yesterday urged Jamaicans to keep abreast of regular updates on the system and to take seriously the potential threat from Isaac, even as a tropical depression.

"Areas of low pressure containing what's left of Storm Helene will still provide moisture and energy which will impact the United Kingdom quite a bit as we go into the early part of next week".

However, hurricane watches are in effect for Guadeloupe, Martinique and Dominica, while storm warnings have been issued for Antigua, Montserrat and St. Kitts and Nevis. Tropical storm force winds extend outward up to 175 miles from the center. The winds of Isaac are not expected to affect the Virgin Islands.

"As Storm Helene clears, it will continue to be windy with some bright or sunny spells".

The local authorities declared the state of emergency across North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia due to the approaching of the Hurricane Florence, while millions of residents of the coastlines have been asked to leave their homes. North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, had about 7 inches.

Forecasters warned that drenching rains of anywhere from 1 to 3½ feet as the storm crawls westward across North and SC could trigger epic flooding well inland over the next few days.

Morehead City, North Carolina, had received 23 inches (58 centimetres) of rain by Friday night, and forecasters warned Saturday morning that parts of the Carolinas could get up to 15 inches (38 centimetres) more.

Meteorologists are also keeping an eye on yet another tropical disturbance that's spinning in the western Gulf of Mexico.

Some of the models show Isaac degenerating into a trough of low pressure in five days. Isaac was moving at nearly 14mph with maximum sustained winds of 40mph as it tracked westward across the Caribbean Sea.
