Here is the latest information I have on Isaias. A new track came in minutes ago and shows a South Carolina landfall. From the data that I can see right now I anticpate a high end tropical storm or possibly even a Cat. 1 hurricane making landfall between Charleston and Myrtle Beach. This is certainly a manageable system, but the impacts need to be taken seriously and can be dangerous. My greatest concern is for coastal flooding and storm surge around high tide in the Charleston area. 5-8' storm surge possible around 9pm. Winds will range between 50-70 mph, possibly higher if ths storm organizes today. We will have hourly updates on and air and online today and I will have an in depth question and answer session LIVE on Facebook tonight at 5pm.
