Tropical Storm Watch for South Florida
Posted by Vivian Gonzalez
All eyes are on tropical storm Isaac as it batters both the Dominican Republic and Haiti. Throughout the day on Friday Isaac has had the perfect opportunity to get better organized and gain strength, steadily increasing its wind speed from 40 mph Friday morning to 65 mph Friday Night.
The models are all in agreement that Isaac will continue moving NW as it makes its way towards Cuba on Saturday and the Florida Keys/So Florida sometime on Sunday. A tropical storm watch has been issued for all of Southern Florida.
If it makes landfall in South Florida we can expect any where from 3-6 inches of rain, possible flood watches issued for the weekend as well as the possibility of tornadoes. If the intensity forecast for Isaac is revised upward the watches currently in effect for South Florida may be upgraded to a hurricane watch.
