Isaac update valid 8/26 at 6:30amAugust 26th, 2012 at 6:16 am by Michael White under FOX10 Stormtracker Weather
Isaac is still a Tropical Storm, but a very strong one and we should see him turn into Hurricane by late tonight and early Monday. The track has shifted again and this time it bring Isaac right on top of Mobile Bay as a Category 2 Hurricane late Tuesday night and into Wednesday. This image shows the latest track from the Hurricane Center and this is valid as of 4am.
Based on this track there have been Hurricane Watches issued for all the coastal waters in our area. We need to treat this as a serious situation and make sure that you take the proper precautions as soon as possible. Putting gas in your car, buying batteries, and getting bottled water are all important things to make sure you do at this point. Now take a look at this next graphic.
This is a look at the raw model data for Isaac and clearly does not show agreement on his final landfall. An upper trough will play a big role in where this thing goes. If the trough dips down quickly it could steer it East, or if it could get caught in an upper Ridge building from the West and track it in that direction. We’ll just have to keep watching but please make sure you don’t take this lightly. We’ll have updates here on Fox10tv.com throughout the day.
