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

Tropical Storm Isaac’s Winds Nearing Leeward Islands

(CBSMiami) - Tropical storm force winds from Isaac will pass through the Lesser Antilles, near Dominica and Martinique Thursday.

The yellow warning is in place from 6pm on Monday until midday on Tuesday, with the impact limited to the south east of the province.

Isaac is moving toward the west near 16 miles per hour, and this general motion with a decrease in forward speed is expected for the next few days.

Isaac is forecast to move into the eastern Caribbean Sea on Thursday, and then move across the eastern and central Caribbean Sea through Saturday, the hurricane center said.

This general motion is expected to continue through the next few days.

That's almost double the wave heights documented on Tuesday, when the NHC said satellites had observed "an expansive area of wave heights 12 feet or greater" circulating around Hurricane Florence and peak waves of 45 feet near its center.

All watches and warnings have been discontinued for Isaac.

Meteorologists say there haven't been four named storms simultaneously spinning in the Atlantic Basin since 2008.

Rainfall of 0.5 to 1.5 inches with isolated amounts to 3 inches are forecast across Puerto Rico and the southern United States Virgin Islands, with up to an inch anticipated across the remaining Windward and Leeward Islands.

Florence, a potentially life-threatening Category 4 hurricane, is on track to make landfall in North Carolina or SC on Thursday (Sept. 13).

Surf swells from Isaac could be life-threatening and coastal flooding is a risk in the Lesser Antilles. This media house does not correct any spelling or grammatical error within press releases and commentaries.

After forecast models showed steering currents collapsing as the storm nears the Carolina coast Tuesday, forecasters shifted the track slightly south. A Category 4 hurricane at its strongest, Olivia spent about a week swishing around in the Pacific Ocean without making landfall before it weakened into a tropical storm.
