The above image is an overview of the Atlantic and eastern Pacific Ocean basins, based on analysis provided by Senior Meteorologist Stu Ostro (On Twitter | On Facebook) and Hurricane Specialist Bryan Norcross (On Twitter | On Facebook). Named storms, hurricanes, or depressions in either basin will be labeled on the graphic. Any other features of interest we’re keeping an eye on for possible development will be circled.

If there are areas of interest, you’ll find zoomed-in details in the next few images. Otherwise, we’ll provide perspective graphics on tropical cyclone climatology for the current month, as well as status updates on the season-to-date.

ropical Storm Isaac is forecast to continue strengthening steadily as it moves through the northern Lesser Antilles on Wednesday and into the northeast Caribbean by Thursday. Isaac could become a hurricane as early as Thursday.

Residents and visitors of the northern Caribbean, Yucatan Peninsula, southeastern United States and the central/eastern Gulf Coast should watch the progress of Isaac closely over the next week or more.

Interactive Projected Path

Initial impacts from Isaac will be felt in the northeastern Caribbean islands Wednesday into Thursday. Numerous watches and warnings have been issued, including a hurricane watch for Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands and the southern Dominican Republic. Puerto Rico will see its greatest impacts from Isaac on Thursday.

Friday into the weekend, Isaac is forecast to pass near or south of Hispaniola and in the general direction of eastern Cuba.

Heavy rainfall, flooding and mudslides will be threats in all of the northern Caribbean islands regardless of how strong the system becomes.

As we look ahead to late weekend and next week, it appears that there is a high probability that the United States will see impacts from Isaac. We have a full look at the potential U.S. threat at this link.
