Tropical Storm Isaias moves up the east coast

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Isaias made landfall Monday night in North Carolina as a category one hurricane. Isaias has downgraded to a tropical storm but is still bringing strong winds, tornadoes, heavy rain, and storm surge to the east coast. Isaias is expected to move quickly to the northeast through New Jersey and New York today. It should then travel up through Vermont Wednesday morning and then to Canada in the afternoon.

We also have a disturbance in the Atlantic that has a 30% chance of development over the next five days. This disturbance may organize into an area of low pressure tomorrow but dry air should limit any significant development. This system is forecast to move northwest today but then drift southwest by Thursday.
