Isaac back at tropical storm strength: U.S. NHC

NHC says tropical depression likely to form in Gulf

The center of Isaac is forecast to pass 109 miles south of St. Croix at 2 a.m. on Friday. A NOAA hurricane hunter aircraft will soon fly through the center of Isaac, and will provide a better assessment of the intensity of the tropical storm and the extent of its winds.

The NHC is estimating that as many as 20 inches of rain could fall in some places along the southern North Carolina coast while bringing in excess of 10 inches of rain in parts of SC.

No high winds are forecast for Port Aransas over the next few days. It expects a tropical depression or weak storm to form and come ashore near Corpus Christi. "It's too early to tell", he added.

While now classified as a hurricane, Helene will be downgraded to a storm by the time it reaches the shores of Northern Ireland.

"A Tropical Storm Warning means that tropical storm conditions are expected somewhere within the warning area, in this case within 12 to 24 hours".

Meteorologists are also keeping an eye on yet another tropical disturbance that's spinning in the western Gulf of Mexico.
