83-Foot Wave Recorded By Satellite Monitoring Hurricane Florence
Tropical storm warnings were issued for Martinique, Dominica, and Guadeloupe.
By the time it moves through the central Lesser Antilles, Isaac is expected to be near hurricane strength before weakening on Friday.
The storm was more than 400 miles off the coast Wednesday, and had winds in the 125 mph range, the National Hurricane Center reported. It will continue to move to the west and away from the V.I. during the overnight hours. When Isaac reaches the west-central Caribbean Sea in a couple of days, the shear may relax somewhat and the global models suggest that there will be an increase in mid-level moisture.
Forecasters say Hurricane Florence is expected to steadily slow down as it makes its way toward the East Coast.
About halfway between Hurricane Florence and Hurricane Helene is the small but risky Tropical Storm Isaac, which was downgraded from hurricane status early this morning (Sept. 11).
A Tropical Storm Warning means that tropical storm conditions are expected somewhere within the warning area within 36 hours.

Chris Landsea, chief of the analysis and forecast branch, told the Associated Press that such waves are entirely possible within the storm, but there's also a chance "radar misinterpreted rain as an 83-foot wave". These swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions.
It's not clear if the storm is expected to strengthen back into a hurricane after it hits the eastern Caribbean.
Current estimates have Isaac passing nearly 150 miles south of St. Croix early Friday morning.
At 11 a.m., the center of the system was about 190 miles east-southeast of Kingston, Jamaica.
