ISAIAS 2 P.M. UPDATE: Tropical Storm Moves Northward

Courtesy: National Hurricane Center

As of the 2 p.m. advisory, Tropical Storm Isaias still has winds of 65 mph and is moving NNW at 9mph.

In addition, Tropical Storm force winds extend 115 miles from the center of the storm.

However, tropical storm warnings have been discontinued for areas south of the Jupiter Inlet.

By 2 p.m., the storm had passed South Florida and was located 45 miles southeast of Vero Beach.

Isaias ran into some drier air and the Bahamian island of Andros, which contributed to the storm’s eye getting greatly disrupted.

The feeder bands of the storm, which contain heavy rain and strong winds, will continue to make their way onshore through Sunday.

Weather on the Treasure Coast will improve overnight Sunday into Monday morning.

On Monday and Tuesday, the center of Isaias will move from offshore of the coast of Georgia into the southern mid-Atlantic states.
