Tropical Storm Isaias Discussion Number  10

NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL       AL092020

500 PM EDT Thu Jul 30 2020

 

Surface observations in the Dominican Republic indicate that the

poorly defined center of Isaias moved over the southeastern portion

of Hispaniola around 1600 UTC.  There is currently a significant

concentration of convection near the mid-level center that is

located along the northern coast of the island, and recent

surface observations suggest that a new center may be forming

near the area of mid-level rotation seen in satellite imagery. The

advisory position has been placed between the previous estimated

center location and the mid-level center until it becomes more clear

that reformation has occurred.  Earlier ASCAT data that arrived

shortly after the previous advisory and reconnaissance aircraft

data from this morning supported an intensity of 45-50 kt, and since

there has no significant degradation the overall organization since

that time, the initial intensity remains 50 kt. The central

pressure of 999 mb is based on a surface observation of 1001 mb and

25 kt of wind at Puerto Plata in the Dominican Republic.

 

The initial motion estimate is a somewhat uncertain 310/17 kt. The

track forecast reasoning has not changed since the previous

advisory.  The tropical storm should continue on a general northwest

heading during the next 24 to 36 hours along the southern side of a

subtropical ridge.  After that time, a trough moving into the

east-central United States should cause Isaias to turn

north-northwestward and northward as the western portion of the

ridge erodes.  By early next week, Isaias is expected to turn

northeastward and accelerate ahead of the aforementioned trough. 

The 1200 UTC dynamical model guidance has shifted eastward and now

that Isaias is expected to become a stronger and deeper cyclone,

that also favors a more eastward track.  The updated official

forecast is a blend of the various consensus aids.  Since the new

center is still in its formative stage some additional shifts in

the track may occur. In addition, strong winds and heavy rainfall

will extend far from the center.

 

Visible imagery has shown significant banding near the mid-level

circulation. Assuming that the center reforms near that feature and

moves away from Hispaniola tonight, strengthening is expected

during the next 24-36 hours and Isaias is now forecast to become a

hurricane.  After that time, there are mixed signals regarding the

amount of southwesterly vertical wind shear and the models

generally do not show much additional strengthening.  Therefore,

the NHC intensity forecast shows a leveling off in intensity after

48 h.  It still needs to be stressed that that there is a higher

than usual amount of uncertainty in the intensity forecast.

 

Key Messages:

 

1. Isaias will produce heavy rains and potentially life-threatening

flash flooding and mudslides across Puerto Rico, the Dominican

Republic, northern Haiti, Turks and Caicos and the Bahamas.

 

2. Hurricane conditions and dangerous storm surge are expected in

portions of the central and northwest Bahamas late Friday and

Saturday. Preparations to protect life and property should be

rushed to completion. Tropical storm conditions will continue to

spread across portions of the Dominican Republic, Haiti, the Turks

and Caicos and the southeast Bahamas tonight through Friday, and

Tropical Storm Warnings are in effect for these areas.

 

3. Tropical storm conditions are possible along portions of the

Florida east coast beginning Saturday, and a Tropical Storm Watch

has been issued. While storm surge watches are not currently needed

for this area, they may be required tonight or early tomorrow if the

forecast track shifts closer to the coast. Heavy rains associated

with Isaias may begin to affect eastern Florida this weekend,

potentially resulting in isolated flash and urban flooding.

 

4. There is a risk of impacts from winds, heavy rainfall, and storm

surge this weekend along the Florida east coast and spreading

northward along the remainder of the U.S. east coast through early

next week. The details of the track and intensity forecast remain

uncertain and it is too soon to determine the magnitude and location

of these potential impacts, but interests along the entire U.S. east

coast should monitor the progress of Isaias and updates to the

forecast.
