Tropical Storm Isaac continues to weaken as it approaches the Caribbean

Maximum sustained winds are near 35 miles per hour (55 km/h) with higher gusts. When Isaac reaches the west-central Caribbean Sea in a couple of days, the shear may relax somewhat and the global models suggest that there will be an increase in mid-level moisture.

Florence, however, continues to threaten the east coast as a fierce storm that could trigger flooding as far south as Georgia.

Subtropical Storm Joyce is located 945 miles west-southwest of the Azores and is moving to the southwest at 6 mph (9 km/h). One system, moving toward Texas in the Gulf Coast, was forecast at a 70 percent chance of cyclone formation over the next 48 hours.

He said: "I think when we give him time, and we keep our patience with the players and with him, I think we can actually focus on what's happening".

"A life-threatening storm surge is highly likely along portions of the coastline of SC and North Carolina, and a Storm Surge Warning is in effect for a portion of this area", the National Hurricane Center said Wednesday. Gradual weakening is forecast after that as Isaac moves through the eastern Caribbean.

Tropical Storm Isaac remains at Tropical Storm intensity but is expected to gradually weaken in the next few days. In a 2 p.m. advisory, forecasters said sustained winds remained at 60 miles per hour, down from 75 miles per hour Monday.

"According to the IPMA's forecast, it is likely that the western islands [Flores and Corvo] should begin to feel the effects of the storm from Saturday afternoon".

An outer band associated with Isaac will bring some scattered showers and possible isolated thunderstorms to Barbados today. That would make five named storms traversing the Atlantic simultaneously, for the first time on record.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 949 mb (28.03 inches).

Meanwhile, Caribbean Airlines has announced that due to Tropical Storm Isaac flights BW 434 BW 435 Port-of-Spain to St. Lucia will be affected and passengers are advised to contact its reservation offices for rebooking on the next available service.
