DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 500 AM EDT (0900 UTC), the center of Hurricane Isaias was located near latitude 20.9 North, longitude 73.3 West. Isaias is moving toward the northwest near 17 mph (28 km/h), and a generally northwestward motion with some decrease in forward speed is expected for the next couple of days followed by turn toward the north-northwest.  On the forecast track, the center of Isaias will 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 and near or east of the Florida 
peninsula on Saturday and Sunday.

Maximum sustained winds are near 80 mph (130 km/h) with higher gusts.  Some strengthening is possible today, and Isaias is  expected to remain a hurricane for the next few days.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 45 miles (75 km) from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 205 miles
(335 km).

The estimated minimum central pressure is 990 mb (29.24 inches).


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
Key messages for Isaias can be found in the Tropical Cyclone Discussion under AWIPS header MIATCDAT4, WMO header WTNT44 KNHC, and
on the web at www.hurricanes.gov/text/MIATCDAT4.shtml.

STORM SURGE:  A dangerous storm surge will raise water levels by as much as 3 to 5 feet above normal tide levels in areas of onshore
winds in the Bahamas.  

WIND:  Tropical storm conditions will continue across portions of the Dominican Republic, Haiti, and the Turks and Caicos this morning.  Hurricane conditions are expected to begin in the southeastern Bahamas this morning and spread into the central and northwestern Bahamas tonight and into Saturday.

Tropical storm conditions are possible in the watch area in Florida beginning Saturday.

RAINFALL: Isaias is expected to produce the following rain accumulations through Saturday:

Dominican Republic and northern Haiti: 4 to 8 inches, with isolated maximum totals of 12 inches.

Bahamas, Turks and Caicos: 4 to 8 inches.

Cuba: 1 to 2 inches, with isolated maximum totals of 4 inches.

These rainfall amounts will lead to life-threatening flash flooding and mudslides, as well as river flooding. Urban and small stream flooding is expected for the U.S. Virgin Islands and Hispaniola.

From Friday night through Monday:

South Florida into east-Central Florida: 2 to 4 inches, with isolated maximum totals of 6 inches.

These rainfall amounts could result in isolated flash and urban flooding, especially in low-lying and poorly drained areas.

Heavy rains associated with Isaias may begin to affect the eastern Carolinas by early next week. This rain could result in isolated flash and urban flooding, especially in low-lying and poorly drained areas, as well as isolated minor river flooding.

SURF:  Swells generated by Isaias are affecting portions of Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic, the Turks and Caicos Islands and the southeastern Bahamas. These swells will spread along the coast of Cuba and into the central and northwestern Bahamas later today and along the east coast of Florida on Saturday. These swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions.Please consult products from your local weather office.

DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 1100 AM EDT (1500 UTC), the center of Hurricane Isaias was located by an Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter aircraft and 
Bahamas radar near latitude 21.7 North, longitude 74.5 West. 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 (335 km).

Reports from the reconnaissance aircraft indicate that the minimum central pressure is 992 mb (29.30 inches).


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
Key messages for Isaias can be found in the Tropical Cyclone Discussion under AWIPS header MIATCDAT4, WMO header WTNT44 KNHC, and on the web at www.hurricanes.gov/text/MIATCDAT4.shtml.

STORM SURGE:  A dangerous storm surge will raise water levels by as much as 3 to 5 feet above normal tide levels in areas of onshore winds in the Bahamas.

WIND:  Tropical storm conditions will continue across portions of the Turks and Caicos this morning. Hurricane conditions in the 
southeastern Bahamas will spread northwestward into the central and  northwestern Bahamas tonight and into Saturday.

Tropical storm conditions are expected in the warning area in Florida beginning Saturday. Hurricane conditions are possible in the Hurricane Watch area beginning Saturday night and continuing into  Sunday.

RAINFALL: Isaias is expected to produce the following rain accumulations:

  • Dominican Republic and northern Haiti: 4 to 8 inches, with isolated maximum totals of 12 inches.
  • Bahamas, Turks and Caicos: 4 to 8 inches.
  • Cuba: 1 to 2 inches, with isolated maximum totals of 4 inches.

These rainfall amounts will lead to life-threatening flash flooding and mudslides, as well as river flooding. Urban and small stream
flooding is expected for the U.S. Virgin Islands and Hispaniola.

From Friday night through Monday:

  • South Florida into east-Central Florida: 2 to 4 inches, with isolated maximum totals of 6 inches.

These rainfall amounts could result in isolated flash and urban flooding, especially in low-lying and poorly drained areas.

Heavy rains associated with Isaias may begin to affect the eastern Carolinas by early next week.  This rain could result in isolated
flash and urban flooding, especially in low-lying and poorly drained areas, as well as isolated minor river flooding.

SURF:  Swells generated by Isaias are affecting portions of  Hispaniola, eastern Cuba, the Turks and Caicos, and the southeastern 
and central Bahamas. These swells will spread into the central northwestern Bahamas later today and along the east coast of

DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 500 PM EDT (2100 UTC), the center of Hurricane Isaias was located by satellite imagery and Bahamas radar data near latitude 22.6 North, longitude 75.7 West. Isaias is moving toward the northwest near 15 mph (24 km/h), and a general northwestward motion with some decrease in forward speed is expected for the next day or so, followed by a turn toward the north-northwest by late Sunday.  On the forecast track, the center of Isaias will continue to move near or over the Southeastern Bahamas this afternoon and evening. 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.

Maximum sustained winds are near 75 mph (120 km/h) with higher gusts.  Strengthening is expected later tonight and early Saturday, and Isaias is forecast to remain a hurricane for the next couple of days.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 35 miles (55 km) from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 175 miles (280 km).  A private weather observing station at Pitts Town Point, Bahamas, recently reported a sustained wind of 37 mph (59 km/h).

The estimated minimum central pressure is 991 mb (29.27 inches).

HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
Key messages for Isaias can be found in the Tropical Cyclone Discussion under AWIPS header MIATCDAT4, WMO header WTNT44 KNHC, and on the web at www.hurricanes.gov/text/MIATCDAT4.shtml.

STORM SURGE:  The combination of a dangerous storm surge and the tide will cause normally dry areas near the coast to be flooded by rising waters moving inland from the shoreline.  The water could reach the following heights above ground somewhere in the indicated areas if the peak surge occurs at the time of high tide...

Jupiter Inlet to Ponte Vedra Beach FL...2-4 ft
North Miami Beach to Jupiter Inlet FL...1-3 ft

The deepest water will occur along the immediate coast near and to  the right of the center, where the surge will be accompanied by  large waves.  Surge-related flooding depends on the relative timing  of the surge and the tidal cycle, and can vary greatly over short  distances.  For information specific to your area, please see  products issued by your local National Weather Service forecast  office.

A dangerous storm surge will raise water levels by as much as 3 to 5 feet above normal tide levels in areas of onshore winds in the Bahamas.

WIND:  Hurricane conditions will continue to spread northwestward  into the central and northwestern Bahamas tonight and Saturday.

Hurricane conditions are expected to reach the coast within the hurricane warning area in Florida late Saturday and Saturday night. Winds are expected to first reach tropical storm strength on  Saturday, making outside preparations difficult or dangerous.  
Preparations to protect life and property should be rushed to completion.

RAINFALL: Isaias is expected to produce the following rain accumulations:

  • Bahamas, Turks and Caicos: 4 to 8 inches.
  • Cuba: 1 to 2 inches, with isolated maximum totals of 4 inches.

These rainfall amounts could lead to life-threatening flash  and urban flooding, especially in low-lying and poorly drained areas.

From Friday night through Tuesday:

  • South Florida into east-Central Florida: 2 to 4 inches, with isolated maximum totals of 6 inches.
  • Northeast Florida into coastal Georgia: 1 to 2 inches.
  • Carolinas into the mid Atlantic, including the southern and central Appalachians: 2 to 4 inches, with isolated maximum totals of 6 inches.

Heavy rainfall from Isaias could result in isolated flash and urban  flooding, especially in low-lying and poorly drained areas. Isolated minor river flooding is possible across the eastern Carolinas and into Virginia.

SURF:  Swells generated by Isaias are affecting portions of Hispaniola, eastern Cuba, the Turks and Caicos, and the southeastern 
and central Bahamas. These swells will spread along the east coast of Florida and the southeastern United States coast on Saturday. These swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions. Please consult products from your local 
weather office.

So, if I am understanding correctly, unless some huge change happens, we will most likely only see the outer bands of this hurricane?
