Based on the current forecast, Isaac will move across the Lesser Antilles and into the eastern Caribbean Sea Thursday.

"It's not a zero event".

Chris Landsea, chief of the analysis and forecast branch, told the Associated Press that such waves are entirely possible within the storm, but there's also a chance "radar misinterpreted rain as an 83-foot wave".

Tropical Storm Isaac is also worth paying attention to, but the news as of Wednesday is encouraging.

"It's just extremely busy and it's even busier than a year ago and all at once", Blake said.

RTE reports that the National Hurricane Centre in the USA said that the weather event will be packing wind speeds of 140km/h, but that by the time it reaches the United Kingdom and Ireland, it won't be as severe as it has been elsewhere. "It's a nasty interplay that makes it very hard".

It's now expected to continue weakening and dissipate in five days.

"Life-threatening flash flooding is possible with Isaac". Sustained winds slowed slightly to 125 miles per hour Tuesday afternoon, making it a Cat 3 storm.


A Tropical Storm Warning is in effect for... Some flooding was forecast early in the day for parts of North Florida, but those forecasts were adjusted later to include high swells and minor coastal flooding at high tide.

Road and bridges may close, with fallen trees are expected.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 105 miles from the center.

At 11 a.m. the centre of Tropical Storm Isaac was located by a NOAA Hurricane Hunter aircraft near latitude 15.0 North, longitude 54.7 West. Isaac is moving toward the west near 17 miles per hour (28 km/h), and this general motion with some decrease in forward is expected to continue through the weekend. "Prepare for long power outages".

A system in the central Gulf of Mexico was a little less certain.

"Regardless of development, heavy rainfall and gusty winds are expected across portions of northeastern Mexico, Texas, and Louisiana late this week, and interests there should monitor the progress of this system", it added. A hurricane hunter plane is scheduled to investigate the system Thursday.

A spokesperson for Met Eireann said that the downgraded hurricane will likely reach Ireland by Tuesday.
