Hurrican Shutters

Installing "Peace of Mind"


Posted by cat5shuttersllc on August 24, 2012

TS ISAAC STRENGHTENSTropical Storm Isaac has been gaining strength through the first half of Friday while spinning west-northwest in the Caribbean Sea. Some additional intensification is possible before Isaac interacts with Hispaniola and eastern Cuba Friday night into Saturday.

Thereafter, residents and visitors of Florida and the central/eastern Gulf Coast should continue to monitor the progress of Isaac closely into next week. There is a high probability that the United States will be affected by Isaac.

Isaac Threat Index
Areas shaded in yellow (Aware), including parts of the southern United States, should be vigilant and monitor the progress of Isaac closely. Orange-shaded locations (Alert), including portions of southern Florida, are typically under a watch or warning, or are expected to be in the next day or so. In red-shaded areas, the risk of impact is sufficiently high that preparations should be made for the storm.

Enhanced Satellite
How does the system look on satellite imagery? Click on “enhanced” satellite imagery, to see how “cold” the cloud tops are. Brighter oranges and reds shadings concentrated near the center of circulation signify a healthy tropical cyclone.

Tropical Storm/Hurricane Watches
A tropical storm watch means that tropical storm conditions, with sustained winds from 39 to 73 mph, are possible in your area within the next 48 hours. A hurricane watch means that hurricane conditions, with sustained winds of 74 mph or higher, are possible in your area within 48 hours.

Tropical Storm/Hurricane Warnings
A tropical storm warning means that tropical storm conditions are expected somewhere within the specified area in the next 36 hours. A hurricane warning means that hurricane conditions are expected somewhere within the specified area in 36 hours or less.

Computer Model Tracks
Plotted are various computer forecast model tracks of the cyclone over the next 5 days. A tight clustering of tracks signifies higher confidence. More spread out tracks signify greater uncertainty. These are used for guidance only and do not communicate any information on forecast intensity. For the official forecast, including potential track path and intensity, see our forecast path
