The most interesting climax in Eastern Florida was Sunday night. In Carolina, the high tide on Monday evening may be the highest water level.
The swell generated by Isaiah is arriving along the southeastern coast of the United States, causing the danger of flooding and rapid currents. The surf will remain climax until Isaias passes.
The National Hurricane Center stated that at the beginning of this week, Isaias is likely to produce the following total rainfall along its route.
-Eastern Florida: 2 to 4 inches, the maximum isolated total is 6 inches.
-Northeast Florida and Coastal Georgia: 1 to 3 inches
-Carolinas and Mid-Atlantic: 2 to 5 inches, the total isolated is 7 inches
-Southeastern New York and most of New England: 2 to 4 inches, with a maximum total isolated height of 6 inches.
