Tropical Storm Isaias Update, 6:30pm Saturday

Isaias is making a mighty try at restrengthening as indicates by the lightning (+). Lightning usually means a strengthening tropical system but this one is dealing with so much dry air, it will be a surprise if it can significantly strengthen.

In any case, while you should not yet discontinue precautions, I will be surprised if hurricane strength winds (sustained winds of 75 mph or stronger) occur on the Florida coast. The storm has slowed considerably and seems to be moving more toward the NNW rather than northwest.

I'll update at least once again this evening.

Reminder: You will find additional information from me at Twitter @usweatherexpert
