Isaac will make landfall over the central Gulf Coast later Tuesday.
The AccuWeather.com Hurricane Center has Isaac's exact position, as well as other latest statistics.
While Isaac remained a tropical storm to close out the weekend, the waters of the eastern Gulf of Mexico are warm enough to allow Isaac to strengthen into a hurricane prior to making landfall.
The good news for those across the Florida Peninsula is that Isaac will be pushing away as it undergoes strengthening.

Squally bands of torrential rain and thunderstorms will continue to stream across central and southern Florida into Tuesday. Such squalls will be capable of producing blinding downpours and strong, gusty winds.
