5:05pm Tropical Storm Isaias Update

The National Hurricane Center has dropped Isaias back to tropical storm strength at 70 mph which is likely generous based on the hurricane hunter data from the flight now in the storm. Both the radar and satellite indicate a poorly organized storm.
Here is the satellite image from 4:55pm. The center looks very weak. However, new thunderstorms (CB) are developing north of the center and will give the system a last chance to reintensify before its approach to Florida (upper left).

Here is the new forecast from the National Hurricane Center.
The amber area is the radius of 40 mph winds or greater. Note they forecast the storm to regain hurricane strength when it is near the Palm Beach Co. coast midday Sunday.

It is then forecast to make a second landfall near the South Carolina - North Carolina border early Tuesday morning.
