Discussion

The 2020 Atlantic Basin tropical season has gotten off to an active start with nine named storms including the latest…Tropical Storm Isaias. Tropical Storm Isaias has pounded away at Puerto Rico in the overnight hours and will come close to the island of Hispaniola later today into tonight. After that, the tropical system may very well have a significant impact on the Bahamas and Florida during the upcoming weekend. Its intensification prospects will likely be limited in the near-term as it interacts with the mountainous terrain of Hispaniola, but it could re-intensify as it pushes towards the Bahamas and Florida this weekend. By early next week, the tropical storm could begin to take a more northerly track as it interacts with an unusually strong upper-level trough that will be digging into the south-central US and slowing down. As a result, its moisture field could very well ride up along the eastern seaboard in the early part of next week – potentially resulting in a significant rain event all the way from Florida to the Northeast US.
