MOBILE Ala. (WKRG) – Isaias is now a low-end category 1 hurricane. It has encountered less wind shear and warm waters, which caused some strengthening before landfall. Data from the Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter Aircraft indicate that the maximum winds have increased to 85 mph from 75 mph as of 8:00 PM this evening with higher gusts.
Dangerous storm surge, damaging winds and torrential rain are all possible along the Atlantic sea board.
Landfall is expected tonight most likely right on the South Carolina/North Carolina boarder and then is expected to accelerate NNE at 25-30 kt across eastern North Carolina Tuesday and then New England Tuesday night and Wednesday morning. After landfall, Isaias is expected to slowly weaken.
