In the tropics, we continue to track Tropical Storm Isaias as it parallels the Florida coast.  At 5 am Monday, Isaias was located near 29.7 North, 79.9 West, about 115 miles east-southeast of Jacksonville.  Maximum sustained winds were 70 miles per hour, and it was moving north at 9 miles per hour.  Isaias is forecst to become a hurricane again before making landfall along the Carolina coast on Monday evening.  It is also forecast to race up the U.S. east coast as a tropical storm on Tuesday and Wednesday.  A hurricane warning is in effect for portions of the coasts of North and South Carolina, and there are tropical storm warnings from northern Florida to South Carolina and from North Carolina to Rhode Island.

Elsewhere, the wave we’ve been watching in the central Atlantic is now a few hundred miles north of the Leeward Islands.  This wave could become a depression in the next few days. It’s forecast to move northwest and then stall out a few hundred miles south of Bermuda. We’ll keep an eye on it.
