For the last several days there has been a smorgasbord of forecasts for what Tropical Storm (soon to be Hurricane) Isaac will do. Now after days of moving east and west with the forecast models, it looks like things are coming together for Isaac's future. It looks very likely that Isaac will make landfall somewhere from the New Orleans area to the Mobile area on late Tuesday night and into Wednesday morning. It looks like it will most likely be a category 2 hurricane (96 to 110 mph) or maybe a category three (111 to 129 mph) when it makes this landfall, along with winds well beyond that with some gusts.
Things could change so please be weather alert over the next several days. Now, if this forecast holds true. Here is what we could expect as time goes on. We could see a few isolated storms maybe as early as Tuesday night and into Wednesday morning (if some bands develop well ahead of the center of Isaac). However most likely the scenario will be that from south to north conditions will deteriorate as we go through Wednesday evening and into Thursday (maybe into Friday). Being that we are going to be just to the northeast of the storm, we will see a better potential for tornado producing storms (along with the heavy rain). So we certainly need to stay weather alert with this storm. Albeit, coastal sections will take the brunt of the storm, we could see the affects mentioned, along with some sustained winds in the 25 to 50 mph category. So we could see some downed trees and power lines in portions of our viewing area (especially the farther south you are in the area).
