Parts of Southeast Florida are now in a Tropical Storm warning and hurricane watch as we see a slight weakening of Isaias down to 75mph moving NW at 16 mph. The pressure has increased to 992 mb.
SUMMARY OF WATCHES AND WARNINGS IN EFFECT:
A Hurricane Watch has been issued for portions of the Florida east
coast from north of Deerfield Beach northward to the
Volusia-Brevard County Line.
A Tropical Storm Warning is in effect for...
- * Turks and Caicos Islands

From the National Hurricane Center:
Isaias is moving toward the northwest near 16 mph (26 km/h), and a
general northwestward motion with some decrease in forward speed
is expected for the day or so followed by a turn toward the
north-northwest. On the forecast track, the center of Isaias
will continue to move near or over the Southeastern Bahamas today.
Isaias is forecast to be near the Central Bahamas tonight, and move
near or over the Northwestern Bahamas Saturday and near the east
coast of the Florida peninsula Saturday afternoon through Sunday.
Data from the reconnaissance aircraft indicate that maximum
sustained winds are near 75 mph (120 km/h) with higher gusts. Some
strengthening is possible today and tonight, and Isaias is expected
to remain a hurricane for the next few days.
Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 35 miles (55 km) from the
center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 205 miles
