Following Isaac's impact on the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla., last week, moisture from Isaac has been fueling stormy weather at the Democratic National Convention 2012 in Charlotte, N.C.
Tropical Rainstorm Isaac's moisture met with a cold front progressing across the East, allowing for locally drenching thunderstorms to hit Charlotte this week. Torrential downpours late Tuesday unleashed 0.89 of an inch of rain, most of which fell in less than an hour.
The threat of thunderstorms continuing today has forced President Barack Obama's Democratic Convention speech to be moved inside the Time Warner Cable Arena, according to the Associated Press.
Besides locally heavy rain, dangerous cloud-to-ground lightning and locally gusty winds may accompany the thunderstorms this afternoon and evening.
Showers and storms will linger into Friday and the weekend as many travel home from the Democratic National Convention, threatening travel delays.
