Isaac Update Valid 6:30amAugust 28th, 2012 at 6:21 am by Michael White under FOX10 Stormtracker Weather
Isaac is still a Tropical Storm as of 6:30 this morning, but is still projected to become a Category One Hurricane later today. This will be the intensity at the time of landfall which is projected to be tonight and into tomorrow with the likely destination around New Orleans. Since we are on the eastern side of the system, we will still feel the impacts from Isaac without a doubt.
This graphic shows that the cone of uncertainty doesn’t exist for our area which leads us to believe that New Orleans will in fact be his final destination. Our biggest hazards will end up being storm surge of around 6′, flash flooding, and isolated tornadoes in the feeder bands. Conditions will improve once we move in towards Thursday and Friday and as always, we’ll be watching very closely.
