Back to Normal
Posted by Vivian Gonzalez
For the time being our thoughts and prayers go out to the people of Louisiana as Isaac continues to lash out with more rain and strong winds. Flood concerns will continue for them throughout the next 48 hours until Isaac continues to weaken over land and move slowly through the central plains. In fact, Isaac is expected to bring beneficial rains over the center part of the Country, since they have been in a drought this Summer.
As for South Florida, we are back to normal. An area of high pressure is building back into the region and with it bringing drier air. This area of high pressure is not a very strong one that will keep us totally dry, but just enough to bring back the summer sun and steamy temperatures we normally see for the month of August. Each and every afternoon, we will see an isolated storm form inland due the development of the sea breezes. Otherwise, the weather will finish on a bright note this week and as we enter into the long holiday weekend.
1) Isaac has weakened into a tropical storm but still producing life-threatening hazards from storm surge and inland flooding as it moves slowly across Southeastern Louisiana. Sustained winds are at 70mph.
2) Tropical Storm Kirk strengthens a little over the open waters of the Atlantic and will not be a threat to land.
3) A broad low associated with a tropical wave located about 900 miles West of the Cape Verde Islands is showing signs of organization. Conditions seem favorable for development. The National Hurricane Center give it a high chance to develop in the next day or two. If it gets a name, it will be Leslie. Computer models are showing it should remain over the open waters of the Atlantic.
Have a wonderful evening South Florida and make it a safe one!
