Isaac dissipated, and updates on Atlantic storms Helene, Joyce

Hurricane Florence Won’t Be The Last To Hit The US This Season As More Form In Its Wake

"Isaac has become less organized and is now a weak Tropical Storm".

This alert is provided by Tropical Storm Risk (TSR).

While hurricane forecast cones are usually right, National Hurricane Center meteorologist Joel Cline says there is just no way to pinpoint the exact location of landfall with any certainty.

Forecasters said Florence is expected to continue moving farther inland across the Carolinas through the weekend before turning toward the central Appalachian Mountains early next week. Tropical-storm-force winds (39 miles per hour or higher) are expected to arrive on Martinique, Dominica and Guadeloupe by early Thursday. When Isaac reaches the west-central Caribbean Sea in a couple of days, the shear may relax somewhat and the global models suggest that there will be an increase in mid-level moisture.

Meanwhile, tropical storm Joyce continues its advance through the southwest Atlantic with maximum sustained winds of 65 kilometers per hour, although it does not represent a threat to populated areas. A turn to the west-northwest is possible early next week if Isaac survives.

The National Hurricane Center (N.H.C.) in its 5:00 p.m. advisory said all tropical storm watches and warnings for Isaac have been discontinued, news that will be welcomed by interests in the Caribbean.

A tropical storm warning is in effect for Martinique, Dominica and Guadeloupe, while a tropical storm watch is in effect for Antigua, Montserrat, St Kitts and Nevis, and Saba and St Eustatius.

It's a detail that almost got lost among all the wind, rain and storm surge data sent out by the National Hurricane Center on Wednesday. Across Puerto Rico and the southern U.S. Virgin Islands 1 to 2 inches of rainfall, with isolated amounts up to 4 inches, is anticipated.

Also spinning in the Atlantic are Tropical Storms Helene and Isaac and Subtropical Storm Joyce, while Tropical Depression Olivia and Super Typhoon Mangkhut are making waves in the Pacific.

In some areas of southeastern North Carolina officials had measured rainfall totals exceeding 16 inches (41 centimeters), warning that some areas could see totals up to 40 inches. Tropical storm conditions are possible within the tropical storm watch area, also beginning late this morning. This as Tropical Storm Isaac continues to weaken. These swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions.
