Latest Storm Team 2 Forecast

Storm Team 2

From Storm Team 2 Chief Meteorologist Rob Fowler

We continue to track Isaias, as it has been downgraded to a tropical storm as it moves along the coast of Florida. The current track has it moving up the coast, passing through the north edge of the South Carolina coastline. The greatest impacts from Isaias will arrive in the Lowcountry Monday and Monday night with bands of rain, gusty winds, and possible flooding.

Here are the key messages on Isaias from the National Hurricane Center

1. There is the danger of life-threatening storm surge inundation of 
2 to 4 feet above ground level from Edisto Beach South Carolina to 
Cape Fear North Carolina along the immediate coastline and adjacent 
waterways. Life-threatening storm surge is possible along the 
North Carolina coast from Cape Fear to Duck.  Residents in these 
areas should follow advice given by local emergency officials. 

2. Tropical storm conditions will spread northward within the 
Tropical Storm Warning area from Florida to North Carolina through 
Monday night. Isaias is expected to be near hurricane strength when 
it reaches the coast of northern South Carolina and southern North 
Carolina Monday night, and strong tropical storm force winds are 
likely with hurricane conditions possible in the Hurricane Watch 

3. Heavy rainfall from Isaias will continue to result in potentially 
life-threatening flash flooding in the Northwest Bahamas through 
tonight. Flash and urban flooding, some of which may be significant 
in the eastern Carolinas and the mid-Atlantic, are expected through 
midweek along and near the path of Isaias across the U.S. East 
Coast. Widespread minor to isolated moderate river flooding is 
possible across portions of the Carolinas and the mid-Atlantic.

4. A tropical storm watch is in effect for the U.S. mid-Atlantic 
coast, including the Chesapeake Bay, Delaware Bay, and Long Island 
Sound, as tropical storm force winds are possible in these areas on 
Tuesday and Tuesday night. Additional watches and warnings will 
likely be issued tonight and Monday as Isaias is expected to move 
northward near or over the mid-Atlantic and New England states 
Tuesday and Wednesday.
