Good Tuesday everyone. Isaac is set to roar ashore late today into early Wednesday along the Louisiana gulf coast. Where this storm goes from there will mean the difference between scattered storms and a washout for our weekend weather.
Here’s all the tools you need to track Isaac:
Isaac will be a slow moving storm across Louisiana and that will mean one heck of a pounding for much of that region. New Orleans is likely to sustain a lot of damage from this devastating storm.
Isaac will weaken into a tropical storm later Wednesday and then into a tropical depression by Thursday. What’s left of the storm will slowly lift northward through Arkansas into southern Missouri and then turn eastward into the Ohio Valley by the weekend. Exactly where this storm makes that turn will be critical in determining how much rain we get.
Scattered showers and thunderstorms from Friday through Labor Day are pretty much a given. If Isaac’s remnants track directly across the state, we will then have to be on guard for the possibility of too much rain.
I will have a better handle on how all this plays out once it comes ashore. I will have updates as needed.
Have a great Tuesday and take care.
