Meteorologist Steve Stewart (Steve Stewart) said the system is very messy due to Florida’s windshear and dry air. He said the storm is unlikely to strengthen. It will maintain strength or weaken due to warm water.
The route of the system has been tracking the closer and closer west, closer to I-95. It is predicted that the triangle will have a higher risk of severe weather
With the final northward turn, the Isaiahs are still expected to bring heavy rains and potential flash floods to the low-lying areas of Florida and Carolina.
We can expect:
From the end of Monday to the beginning of Tuesday, our area may experience heavy rain and flash floods.
The total amount of rainwater may be between 2-4 inches. The wind speed may range from 35 mph to 55 mph. This means there may be some blackouts and isolated tornadoes east of the storm.
