Isaac a little weaker as it moves towards the Eastern Caribbean
The Wednesday morning forecast includes a Tropical Storm Warning for Dominica, Guadeloupe and Martinique, and a Tropical Storm Watch for Antigua/Barbuda, Montserrat, St. Kitts/Nevis, Saba and St. Eustatius. However, forecasters say the maximum sustained winds have decreased from 75 to about 60 mph (95 km/h) and further gradual weakening is expected during the next few days.
At 5:00 a.m. Isaac’s centre was located at 14.5 North, 53.5 West or 500 miles (805 KM) East of Martinique. It is moving towards the West at 15 mph (24 km/h) and this path should take it across the island chain and into the Caribbean sea on Thursday.
Forecasters expect Isaac to produce between two and four inches of rainfall across Dominica, Martinique and Guadeloupe and up to one inch in the remaining Windward and the Leeward Islands.
