MOBILE, Ala. (WKRG) – Isaias is a hurricane with max winds of around 75 mph.
Hurricane Isaias, the second hurricane of the 2020 season, continues moving northwest at a brisk pace close to 20 mph. Now that the storm is back over warm waters, Isaias will likely strengthen more as it passes through the Turks and Caicos and the southern Bahamas.
Isaias is expected to approach South Florida Saturday evening and a landfall is possible. The storm will take a more northerly track as it gets swept up by and upper-level trough. By Sunday, the storm should begin turning to the northeast. Isaias may affect the entire US East Coast. Impacts will be highly dependent on the eventual track.
Isaias is not a threat to the Gulf Coast. If anything it will help bring lower rain chances during the early half of next week as it will promote northerly winds thanks to the counter clockwise flow.
