Isaac winds slow to 45 miles per hour, heavy rain, high surf expected

83-Foot Wave Recorded By Satellite Monitoring Hurricane Florence NOAA: Sub-Tropical Storm Joyce Projected Path, Spaghetti Models

It is once again a tropical storm out in the Caribbean Sea.

The mammoth waves were spotted early Wednesday in the storm's northeast quadrant, said the NHC's Tropical Analysis and Forecast Branch, which has been documenting Florence's waves all week. "A NOAA buoy located about 80 miles (130 km) south of the center of Florence has recently reported sustained winds of 52 km (83 km/h) with a gust to 64 mph (104 km/h)". "Gradual weakening is forecast over the next couple of days, and Helene is expected to become a tropical storm on Thursday".

Winds of tropical storm strength could reach Puerto Rico on Friday morning.

"My concern at present is that the storm could deepen during its approach to Ireland, transforming from a Post Tropical Cyclone into a very powerful Atlantic Storm, which would potentially increase the winds along the west and south coast given the storms angle and interaction with the jet stream". Given its expected slow speed once it rolls ashore, they warned the heavy rain and storm could spread across a wide area.

Interests elsewhere in the Leeward Islands should monitor the progress of Isaac.

Duke Energy North Carolina President David Fountain said Florence is so massive and its potential for damage so extensive that people could be without power for a very long time. It is moving northwest at 15 miles per hour, according to the NHC's update at 11 a.m. Sept 12.

The National Hurricane Center says the waves were measured by satellite. Earlier forecasts showed that the storm was slated to directly hit around North and SC.

Storm surge of up to 13 feet is also likely across portions of NC.

A High Surf Advisory has been posted for the south coast, the Islands and the NH Seacoast associated with Hurricane Florence just off the coast of the Carolinas.

Not the most ideal of weather-situations and apparently it's only about to get worse because the tail-end of a hurricane is about to hit Ireland and it's not going to be pretty.

As of Tuesday evening, this storm is a Category Four and is expected to remain strong as it heads towards the coast of North Carolina.

Florence, which was downgraded to a Category 1 hurricane overnight, officially made landfall near Wrightsville Beach shortly before 7:45 a.m.

"We can not stress this enough, Florence poses a very serious threat to people who live far away from the coast", said a National Weather Service tweet late Tuesday.

"Cloudiness and showers associated with a trough of low pressure over the south-central Gulf of Mexico have decreased since yesterday and the Air Force reconnaissance plane scheduled to investigate the system for today will likely be canceled", said the NHC on September 12. However, cloudiness and showers trailing Tropical Depression Isaac will continue to affect the Lesser Antilles including Saint Lucia during the next 24 hours.
