A couple of comments...
1. Gone with the west of Florida track. Probably waited too long to make that change, but wanted to make sure that would be the correct move instead of waffling with every run of the models.
2. Key point, Isaac will become a Category 2 hurricane once it clears the north coast of Cuba. Miami Beach and the Keys will have hurricane-force gusts with tropical storm-force gusts north of Miami through Fort Lauderdale.
3. Isaac will hit the Panhandle of Florida as a Category 2 hurricane on Tuesday night or early on Wednesday morning. That means a lot of damage for the parts of the panhandle.
4. Flooding will become the big issue once Isaac moves into the Southeast. The western Carolinas are wet, so that is one area to watch for flooding.
We are going into a five- to seven-day period of severe weather which will include tornadoes. We could see over 100 reports of tornadoes.
Latest map on the severe weather areas this weekend into Monday. Monday could be the big day.
Marginal severe weather the rest of the week, but the weekend could turn ugly in the Plains as the tornadoes return.
Tornadoes remain low but that may change this weekend.
More severe weather today into Saturday in the form of hail and damaging winds.
Storms will produce hail and strong winds today and Friday. Maybe a tornado or two in Texas.
