For First Time, 5 Named Storms Could Crowd Atlantic Ocean

Hurricane Isaac has seriously weakened recently due to the wind shear in the Atlantic

On the forecast track, the center of Florence will move over the southwestern Atlantic Ocean between Bermuda and the Bahamas tonight, and approach the coast of North Carolina or SC in the hurricane warning area on Thursday and Friday, and move slowly near the coastline through Saturday.

A westward motion is forecast to continue through the end of the week, with Isaac expected to move across the Lesser Antilles and into the eastern Caribbean Sea Wednesday night or Thursday. Hurricane force winds now extend out 70 miles, McDonald added.

A small-craft warning means in this case that surface winds greater than or equal to 25 knots and seas equal to or greater than 3 metres (10ft) are already affecting or expected to affect the marine area.

Isaac a little weaker and continues to lose organisation as it moves westward.

"Isaac is a small hurricane and uncertainty in the forecast is higher than normal", the National Hurricane Center said.

A turn to the west-northwest is possible early next week if Isaac survives. Isaac was moving to the west at 21 miles per hour with maximum sustained winds of 45 miles per hour.




A Tropical Storm Warning is in effect for...

The center of Isaac passed between Dominica and Martinique around 9 a.m. AST, with westerly winds reported on both St. Lucia and Martinique, indicating that Isaac is still a tropical storm. Florence is a category 3 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale.

According to the NHC 11 p.m. Tuesday update, Tropical Storm Isaac's center is "outrunning" the deep convection by about a degree due to strengthening westerly shear.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 1000 mb (29.53 inches).

Friday's expected landfall near the NC/SC border will cause Florence to weaken as it interacts with the coast.
