Tropical Storm Isaias likely to form in the Atlantic, adding to a record-breaking season

By Max Claypool and Judson Jones, CNN

Updated 12:49 PM ET, Mon July 27, 2020

A storm system has an 80% chance of being upgraded to a depression or Tropical Storm in the next 48 hours.


(CNN)
A tropical disturbance in the Atlantic has an 80% chance of strengthening into a tropical depression or Tropical Storm Isaias (ees-ah-EE-as) within the next 48 hours, according to the National Hurricane Center.
It would be the earliest storm to begin with an "I" on record. The previous record was set on August 7, 2005, part of the busiest season to date.

Face masks that support a good cause
Face masks have become our new normal, and with these masks, you can make sure you're doing even more good than usual.

This would continue the record-breaking pace of the 2020 Atlantic hurricane season. Hurricane Hanna smashed the record for earliest storm with an "H" name by 11 days.

Days after Hurricane Hanna brought torrential rain and flooding to South Texas, unusually warm sea surface temperatures are providing fuel for the tropical disturbance to strengthen.
Track the progression of this storm with CNN's storm tracker
"Every model that I looked at today develops this area into some form of tropical system and turns it toward or north of Puerto Rico," CNN meteorologist Chad Myers said.
Several models predicting the path of the storm are in agreement of where this system is likely to go.
Several models predicting the path of the storm are in agreement of where this system is likely to go.
Even though the storm won't threaten land for a few days, the models are consistent in showing the storm tapping into warm waters and strengthening.
"Rarely do you see the convergence of models like you're seeing with this next storm," Myers said. "There's a consensus with this that the storm is going to do something and that it's going to get into that Bahamas area."
The system will encounter favorable conditions allowing it to develop and strengthen as it tracks west, the National Hurricane Center says.

"The system is forecast to move westward to west-northwestward at 15 to 20 mph and could begin to affect portions of the Lesser Antilles on Wednesday or Wednesday night," NHC said. "Interests on those islands should continue to monitor the progress of this system."

Covid-19 makes the pace of this hurricane season more dangerous, according to Myers. People are more reluctant to leave their homes, and when a major hurricane inevitably does make landfall, people will be forced to pack together in shelters, making social distancing impossible.

Looks like Isaias will hit a feww of the Diners, as well as Trumpovetsky's Mara-a-Lago.  Then NY Shity also!

LD in SC and Surly in VA look to be impacted, and perhaps even C5 in Nova Scotia!

Virginia Beach braces for Isaias

by: Regina Mobley
Posted: Jul 31, 2020 / 08:54 PM EDT   / Updated: Jul 31, 2020 / 09:53 PM EDT   


VIRGINIA BEACH, Va (WAVY) — In the Pungo section of Virginia Beach, melons, peaches, tomatoes, and corn are overflowing in display trays at the Flip Flop produce stand in the heart of the farming community.

Owner Bruce Henley planted the corn in stages, so he still has several acres of crops in the ground that are not ready for harvest. With Hurricane Isaias bearing down on the East Coast, he’s worried Mother Nature will bring an early end to the corn season.
WAVY.com Hurricane Coverage

“We have a lot of sweet corn. We are picking every day. If we get 60 to 70 mph winds, it could blow the corn level flat,” said Henley.

From the Princess Anne district to the North Carolina line, Public Works crews in Virginia Beach are preparing for a storm that could drag water from the Albemarle Sound all the way to the heart of southern Virginia Beach. Public Works crews outside Ashville Park tested a pump system Friday to make sure it can send overflow to Back Bay.

Parts of Ashville Park resembled Venice, Italy, in the fall of 2016 when a downgraded Hurricane Matthew battered the Virginia coast.
Virginia Gov. Northam declares state of emergency ahead of Hurricane Isaias

Since then, the city has spent $53 million on pumps and other measures to prevent widespread damage to homes and businesses in along Baker Road, Bellamy Manor, South Lake Holly Sherwood Lakes, Windsor Woods, Princess Anne Plaza, Eastern Shore Drive, Cape Henry, Ashville Park, and New Bridge.

While the city is doing the heavy lifting — checking pumps, clearing storm drains and removing flags and banners at the Oceanfront — officials are calling on homeowners and businesses to do their part to help reduce potential problems.

The city recommends that you remove and secure loose objects in your yard, sign up for VB alerts, visit ready.gov for storm preparation tips, and create a family emergency plan.

Ahead of hurricane, Coast Guard rescues boaters off VA coast who had ‘no idea’ they were headed into its path

PORTSMOUTH, Va. (WAVY) -- On Friday, a captain with the United States Coast Guard said a situation recently played out that underscores why they preach preparedness ahead of any potential storm.

Hurricane Isaias has the potential to bring with it heavy rain and gale-force winds to waterways across the Mid-Atlantic by early next week. So as they usually do, USGS put out notices to boaters -- recreational and commercial -- to be ready.

Tropical Storm Isaias Grazes Florida En Route To The Carolinas

August 2, 20208:42 PM ET

Tropical Storm Isaias skirted the east coast of Florida on Sunday and is now on track to hit the Carolinas Monday night.

As of 8:00 p.m. the National Hurricane Center said the storm was located about 55 miles southeast of Cape Canaveral, Fla. and 385 miles south of Myrtle Beach, S.C. Its maximum sustained winds have increased slightly to 70 miles per hour.

South Florida is emerging from the storm with relatively little damage, though local officials had braced for more serious damage including widespread power outages.

Between 2 and 4 inches of rain fell in some South Florida areas and the storm knocked out power for a few hundred people, according to the Miami Herald. Member station WLRN reported that Florida Power and Light had restored power to nearly 20,000 customers as of 9 a.m. Sunday.

Isaias, which was downgraded from hurricane to tropical storm over the weekend, is expected to be a "strong tropical storm" when it reaches the coast of eastern South Carolina or southern North Carolina on Monday night.

A hurricane watch and storm surge warning are in effect for portions of the Carolinas as of early Sunday evening, and a tropical storm watch is in effect for the U.S. mid-Atlantic coast.

Isaias could bring 1 to 8 inches of rainfall in areas from Florida to New England in the coming week, according to the National Hurricane Center.

It warned that "dangerous storm surge" is possible from the city of Edisto Beach, S.C. to Cape Fear, N.C. The center said water could rise between 2 and 4 feet above ground level along that stretch of coast in the next 48 hours.

The National Hurricane Center is forecasting "slow weakening" after the storm makes landfall and moves across the U.S. mid-Atlantic region late Monday and Tuesday.

Isaias is expected to remain a tropical storm well into midweek as it tracks up the East Coast. The NHC said that in addition to storm surge, much of the East Coast could see flash flooding and urban flooding as well as ocean swells and tornadoes.

On Saturday, South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster called evacuations "unnecessary," but urged people to take personal precautions.

And North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper said on Sunday afternoon that he had declared a state of emergency and received a federal declaration of emergency for 25 counties. He urged residents to follow local evacuation orders and make a plan to seek shelter outside of the danger zone.

In a hurricane season further complicated by the coronavirus pandemic, Cooper said shelters in the state will screen people and direct those with symptoms to other locations accordingly.

"During the pandemic, your home has been the safest place, but that may change as Isaias arrives," he said.

Hurricane Isaias Makes Landfall In North Carolina

Updated at 11:43 p.m. ET

The National Hurricane Center says Hurricane Isaias came ashore near Ocean Isle Beach, N.C., Monday night just after 11 p.m. ET, with sustained winds of 85 mph.

The storm is expected to linger in North Carolina, traveling inland through the night before swirling up the Mid-Atlantic coast and into the northeastern United States on Tuesday night.

"Heavy rainfall along the East Coast, near the path of Isaias, will result in flash and urban flooding, some of which may be significant in the eastern Carolinas, Mid-Atlantic and Northeast through Wednesday. Widespread minor to moderate river flooding is possible across portions of the Carolinas and the Mid-Atlantic. Quick-responding rivers in Northeast will also be susceptible to minor river flooding," the National Hurricane Center said.

The center warned that tornadoes are also possible over the coastal Carolinas through Tuesday evening and through eastern Virginia and New England on Tuesday as well.

Tropical Storm Isaias Grazes Florida En Route To The Carolinas

The storm had already affected parts of Florida, having grazed the east coast of the state as a tropical storm on Sunday, dumping some 2 to 4 inches of rain and knocking out power for a few hundred customers, according to the Miami Herald.

Officials are warning of a potentially more severe outcome in some parts of North and South Carolina, particularly in the stretch from the South Santee River in South Carolina to Surf City, N.C., a region that's under a hurricane warning.

Areas spanning from the coastal waters of Georgia up to the Virginia coast could see several feet of storm surge as the storm progresses.

Further complicating matters is the coronavirus pandemic. In crowded storm shelters, it may be difficult to maintain social distancing to prevent the virus's spread.

In a Sunday tweet, North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper acknowledged the complications of managing both a pandemic and a hurricane at the same time.

"Our state has weathered more than our fair share of storms," he said. "We know how to plan, prepare & respond when it's over. Nothing about that has changed. But this time, we're gonna do it with a mask on. Helping your neighbors & loved ones is even more important as this storm approaches."
