Sunday August 2 2020
We’ve had a few storms early this morning represent a warm front. Without doubt it is very steamy today and heat index values will reach 100ºF. While some strong thunderstorms are expected tonight, we need to focus on Tropical Storm Isaias.
It had weakened and now NOT expected to become a hurricane, however warnings are in place along the Florida coast, with watches up to North Carolina. The bulk of the energy is over the water, but that will change. The track still takes it through Maryland bringing flooding rain on Tuesday.
Morning Set Up
It will be very hot and uncomfortable.

The storm got beat up yesterday with dry air. While it regenerated overnight, the bulk of the energy is east of the center, offshore.
The storm will get closer to the Florida coast today, bringing bands of heavy rain, stronger winds, and high waves. But it is expected to remain offshore.
