Isaac Takes Aim At Gulf Coast

early cycle 00z

Tropical Storm Issac is starting to emerge into the Gulf of Mexico. Plenty of warm waters await Isaac as it tracks toward the Gulf Coast. This will lead to an intensification to hurricane status before landfall. 

The trend over the past 24 hours has been to shift the track of Isaac farther west with landfall now possible from west of New Orleans to the Mississippi and Alabama coasts.

The latest official track from the National Hurricane Center has followed this trend west with landfall expected around New Orleans sometime late Tuesday into Wednesday with a turn north into Arkansas late week.

I think we will see more of a west shift to this storm before it makes landfall. If this storm can make landfall in central Louisiana, we would see a better chance of seeing rain in our area late week. 

The GFS model has been consistent for the past few runs in bringing Isaac into central Louisiana and turning it north into our area.
