Hurricane Florence Won’t Be The Last To Hit The US This Season As More Form In Its Wake

Tropical Storm Isaac is expected to be at hurricane strength when it reaches the Lesser Antilles on Thursday

Isaac is forecast to move into the eastern Caribbean Sea on Thursday, and then move across the eastern and central Caribbean Sea through Saturday, the hurricane center said.

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". Hurricane watches have been issued for Guadeloupe, Dominica and Martinique and tropical storm warnings in Antigua and St. Kitts and Nevis. This as Tropical Storm Isaac continues to weaken.

The public is encouraged to continue monitoring the Met Office via its social media accounts and website at www.metoffice.gov.tt for updates.

As three powerful storms march one by one across the Atlantic Ocean toward the U.S. East Coast and the Caribbean, a fourth is getting ready to roll over the Hawaiian Islands. A turn to the west-northwest is possible early next week if Isaac survives.

"Outside the warning area, there will be blustery conditions with increasing amounts of cloud and rain".


The National Hurricane Center said in its 11 a.m. ET advisory that up to 5 inches of rain could fall in Puerto Rico. Weather forecasters are watching a disturbance in the western Gulf of Mexico that has a 50 percent chance of becoming Tropical Storm Kirk in the next two days, according to the National Hurricane Center.

Steered westward by high pressure to its north, Isaac is forecast to move through the Lesser Antilles today and tomorrow.

The deepest water will occur along the immediate coast in areas of onshore winds, where the surge will be accompanied by large and destructive waves.
