Forecast Track (The Weather Channel)

By Donna Thomas, Meteorologist - Tropical Storm Isaac is moving through the southeastern Gulf of Mexico, but the large and strengthening storm is still bringing gusty winds and heavy rains to South Florida.  At 5 am on Monday, Isaac was located at 25.2 North, 84.2 West, or 470 miles east-southeast of New Orleans.  Maximum sustained winds were 65 miles per hour at 5 am. Isaac is moving west-northwest at 14 miles per hour.  On its forecast track and speed, Isaac would make landfall as a hurricane on or near the Louisiana coast on Wednesday.

While gusty winds and heavy rains continue in South Florida, the tropical storm warning for Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach has been dropped.  The tropical storm warning remains in effect for the Keys.  A tornado watch is in effect for the southern peninsula of Florida until 9 am, and a flood watch and a wind advisory are in place for South Florida until Monday evening.  Conditions will gradually improve through the day on Monday.
