Hurricane hunter to fly through Tropical Depression Isaac

Hurricane hunter to fly through Tropical Depression Isaac

Maximum sustained winds have decreased to near 60 miles per hour (95 km/h) with higher gusts.

This weekend Isaac is forecast to move toward the central and western Caribbean as a tropical storm.

At this time no tropical storm/hurricane watches or warnings are in effect for Barbados.

Tropical Storm Isaac continued west at 15 miles per hour with maximum winds of 60 miles per hour as of 5:00 a.m. Wednesday.

The Met Office website added: "The storm will also bring some rain, the heaviest of which looks likely to be restricted to the west side of the United Kingdom, as well as some warm tropical air, meaning the south east of the country could see temperatures later in the weekend and into the start of next week reaching the mid 20 Celsius".

After two weeks of an worldwide break both sides will be looking to maintain their early season momentum. Fantastic we won all of them, fantastic we improved during the season.

The specialists refer to the probability that it will be reoriented towards the British Isles in an extratropical cyclone condition. A warning means tropical-storm-force winds (39-plus mph) are expected somewhere within the warning area within 36 hours.

Florence diminished from hurricane strength as it came ashore on Friday, but forecasters said the 350-mile-wide storm's (560 km) slow progress across the two states could leave much of the region under water in the coming days. A NOAA hurricane hunter aircraft will soon fly through the centre of Isaac, and will provide a better assessment of the intensity of the tropical storm and the extent of its winds.

The small but vigorous low is expected to bring very strong and gusty winds along with heavy rain to the Britain early next week but there is still some uncertainty in the forecast. Tropical Storm Isaac will also be a threat, but this one is taking a southern path and heading toward the Caribbean.

Tropical Storm Isaac is expected to produce total rainfall accumulations of 2 to 4 inches with isolated amounts up to 6 inches across Martinique, Dominica, and Guadeloupe, especially over elevated terrain. Some flooding was forecast early in the day for parts of North Florida, but those forecasts were adjusted later to include high swells and minor coastal flooding at high tide.

Meanwhile, Caribbean Airlines has announced that due to Tropical Storm Isaac flights BW 434 BW 435 Port-of-Spain to St. Lucia will be affected and passengers are advised to contact its reservation offices for rebooking on the next available service.
