Hurricane Florence Created Enormous 83-Foot Waves In the Atlantic

"Isaac has become less organized and is now a weak Tropical Storm".

A small craft warning and high surf advisory will remain in effect.

Meantime in the Pacific, Tropical Storm Olivia is still moving toward Hawaii, where tropical storm warnings and watches are in effect, according to the Pacific Hurricane Center.

As of 5 P.M. Wednesday, the "storm of a lifetime" continued to make its way toward the Carolina coast, with max winds of up to 120 miles per hour.

Meteorologists expect Isaac to travel through the eastern and central Caribbean in the coming days and experience a gradual weakening until it degrades to a tropical wave at any time.

N.H.C. said at 5:00 p.m. that the center of Tropical Storm Isaac was located near latitude 14.9 North, longitude 63.2 West. Isaac is moving toward the west near 16 miles per hour (26 km/h), and this general motion with a decrease in forward speed is expected for the next few days.

"Little change in strength is forecast during the next 48 hours", the NHC added.

The tropical storm is battling strong winds in the upper atmosphere and it is possible Isaac could degenerate into a tropical wave as it moves through the Lesser Antilles. It was fluctuating between a Category 3 and Category 4 storm but was threatening to bring strong winds, heavy rains, risky storm surges and significant and possibly life-threatening flooding to the Carolinas. After landfall, then, the concern will even continue as inland flooding may bring a serious risk to a large area, depending on the eventual track. Tropical Storm Isaac will also be a threat, but this one is taking a southern path and heading toward the Caribbean.

Joyce and Helene are both now tropical storms that will continue to stay out to sea and not impact the U.S.

The Meteorological Service has issued a severe weather alert for all parishes from Sunday to Monday.

Some coastal flooding is possible in areas of onshore winds.

Swells along portions of the Azores, which will likely continue for a couple of days, could cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions, the NHC said.
