Hurricane Isaias Discussion Number  13

NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL       AL092020

500 AM EDT Fri Jul 31 2020

 

Satellite images indicate that Isaias is maintaining a small

central dense overcast, with a new burst of convection recently

forming near the center. Earlier aircraft data indicated that the

pressure had fallen to 990 mb, although there was little from the

aircraft that supported more than the previous advisory's intensity

of 70 kt.

 

The hurricane has been moving between west-northwest and northwest

during the last several hours, estimated at 305/15 now.  Isaias

should gradually turn to the north-northwest and north over the

weekend as it moves around the western periphery of a weakening

western Atlantic subtropical ridge.  Guidance is in fairly good

agreement over the first couple of days of the forecast, so little

change is made at that time, other than a small westward adjustment

near the Bahamas.  After that time, there is a considerable spread,

growing to over 700 miles, in the reliable models on how quickly

Isaias moves northeastward near the east coast of the United States.

The large spread appears to be related to both how strong the

cyclone is by early next week and how much mid-level ridging

remains near the Carolinas.  There are no obvious reasons to choose

either the fast GFS or slow ECMWF right now, so the official

forecast will remain close to the previous one and the model

consensus.  It should be noted that given this large spread, the

extended forecast could be subject to large speed/timing changes if

either of those solutions become more likely.

 

Strengthening is expected during the next day or so while the

hurricane remains over the very warm waters near the Bahamas with

reasonably low vertical shear.  The forecast for the first 24 hours

has been raised from earlier, at the top of the guidance spread. 

Increasingly southwesterly flow aloft should cause an increase in

shear over the weekend, which is forecast by most of the guidance

to lead to a gradual decrease in intensity.  The details are not

very clear at all, especially considering the track uncertainty,

but there is a notable chance of a hurricane moving close to the

U.S. East coast, so the forecast continues to show that scenario.

 

 

Key Messages:

 

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

flash flooding and mudslides across the Dominican Republic, northern

Haiti, Turks and Caicos, and the Bahamas. Heavy rains associated

with Isaias may begin to affect South and east-Central Florida

beginning late Friday night, and the eastern Carolinas by early next

week, potentially resulting in isolated flash and urban flooding,

especially in low-lying and poorly drained areas. Isolated minor

river flooding is possible in the Carolinas early next week.

 

2. Hurricane conditions and dangerous storm surge are expected in

portions of the Bahamas today and Saturday, and Hurricane Warnings

are in effect for these areas. Preparations to protect life and

property should be rushed to completion.

 

3. Tropical storm conditions are possible along portions of the

Florida east coast beginning Saturday, and a Tropical Storm Watch

remains in effect.  While storm surge watches are not currently

needed for this area, they may be required later today if the

forecast track shifts closer to the coast.  Heavy rains associated

with Isaias may begin to affect South Florida and east-Central

Florida beginning late tonight, potentially resulting in isolated

flash and urban flooding, especially in low-lying and poorly

drained areas.

 

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

surge late this weekend from the northeastern Florida 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.
