This general motion is forecast to continue today with a decrease in forward speed as it gets over the Caribbean Sea.

Given the lack of deep convection to sustain the cyclone, continual gradual weakening is expected.

Tropical Storm Isaac is expected to produce up to 4 inches of rain, with isolated amounts up to 6 inches, across Martinique, Dominica, and Guadeloupe, especially over elevated terrain.

Storm surge warnings , hurricane warnings, and tropical storm warnings are in effect along the coast of the Carolinas. At 7 a.m., the center of the eye was located about 5 miles (10 kilometers) east of Wilmington, moving west at 6 mph.

Tropical storm conditions are expected within the tropical storm warning area beginning within the next few hours through the afternoon. The storm surge could rise up to 13 feet - that's water inundating homes up to the first-floor ceiling, the National Hurricane Center said. A Category 4 hurricane at its strongest, Olivia spent about a week swishing around in the Pacific Ocean without making landfall before it weakened into a tropical storm.

However, according to the latest projections, the storm might shift slightly to the south and affect Georgia with heavy rain and possible flooding. When Isaac reaches the west-central Caribbean Sea in a couple of days, the shear may relax somewhat and the global models suggest that there will be an increase in mid-level moisture.

The NHC is estimating that as many as 20 inches of rain could fall in some places along the southern North Carolina coast while bringing in excess of 10 inches of rain in parts of SC.

The storm is tracking to the west at 16 miles per hour.
