Isaac Moving Out
Posted by Vivian Gonzalez
Sunday turned out to be a day where all of South Florida experienced squally weather due to the outer bands of Isaac. The outer bands brought periods of strong winds up to tropical storm force accompanied with heavy rain.
As Isaac starts to move away, South Florida will be seeing improvements in the weather department. In the meantime, look for it stay cloudy, windy and rainy through Monday. By Tuesday, the wind will turn breezy out of the South and tropical moisture will be less. Only expect to see occasional speedy showers. Once the middle of the week rolls through, our typical summer time pattern will be around as high pressure builds into the region. This should help the sunshine make a comeback and drier weather as well. Only look for inland isolated showers and storms due to the developing sea breeze collisions.
TROPICS: Isaac has now moved into the Southeastern Gulf of Mexico moving through the warmest body of water there... the loop current. As of the 11pm advisory, that forecast calls for Isaac to strengthen rapidly and the center is aiming for New Orleans as a Category Two hurricane. It has actually slowed down its forward movement and expected to make landfall in Louisiana Wednesday evening.
Have a great evening South Florida and make it a safe one. The risk of seeing isolated tornadoes and additional flooding through Monday is high as the air remains unsettled with Isaac nearby in the Gulf of Mexico.
