ISAIAS REMAINS A HURRICANE & THREAT TO CAROLINA COAST

ISAIAS: It's a big day as Isaias approaches the Florida coast late today. The land interaction it has in Florida will determine the strength when it moves toward the Carolina Sunday and Monday. Many of our reliable computer models show the system, as a tropical storm or hurricane making landfall between Charleston and Wilmington on Monday evening. Right now dry air wrapping into the core is thankfully preventing the system from getting stronger in the near term. However, that wind shear and dry air is set to slack up a bit late today as the system moves over warm Gulf Stream waters, so a consistent strength if not a steady increase is possible once it brushes against central Florida. We will keep you posted. Big update tonight at 5pm, I'll be live on air on here on Facebook to keep you posted!
