Hurricane Isaias Update #2

According to the National Weather Service Morehead City Saturday morning briefing, the hurricane has continued to slow as it approaches Florida, delaying the forecasted arrival time of Tropical Storm force winds to late Monday night/early Tuesday morning. The track through Florida will be monitored closely since a track to the west of the current cone will mean the storm will spend more time over land, and threats from wind, rain, and tornadoes will lessen. Conversely, if it tracks to the east of the cone it will spend more time over water and impacts will likely increase.

The storm brings multiple threats in addition to wind and rain, including the possibility of localized flooding, storm surge (both ocean and sound side), tornadoes (especially Monday night), all of which are dependent on the storm track. Of most concern now, and for the next several days, is the dramatically increased possibility of rip currents. The ocean is to be avoided.

AT THIS TIME – The storm is expected to bring 2-3” of rain to North Topsail Beach, with maximum sustained winds of 66mph, maximum gusts of 83 mph. It is still forecasted to arrive here as a strong tropical storm or low-end hurricane – depending on the track of the storm. It will be a fast-moving storm when it impacts our area, and will exit to the North & East.

Please make all necessary preparations, secure any objects on your property, and monitor all local news sources for changes in the forecast. The next scheduled NWS briefing will be this evening, and we will update this site shortly thereafter.
