Hurricane Watches Extended Westward to Louisiana
Even the experts at the National Hurricane Center are admitting that there is a lot of uncertainty when it comes to the forecast track of Tropical Storm Isaac.
As of 1pm today, hurricane watches now extend from near Morgan City, Louisiana to about halfway through the Panhandle of Florida.
Tropical Storm Isaac currently has maximum sustained winds of 60mph, but it is expected to intensify over the next couple of days as it makes it way over the Florida Keys and then into open Gulf waters.
The official forecast track has Isaac as a hurricane making landfall Wednesday morning near Gulfport, Mississippi, however, the track seems to be changing every few hours and judging by the various models below, many points along the Gulf Coast should be watchful.
Some scenarios even show the remnants of Isaac tracking across parts of East Texas. If that were to happen, Isaac would just be a depression by then with some gusty winds and possibly some good rainfall in the area. But, like we said, there’s still a lot of uncertainty with Isaac.
