Weather Update 8.4.20

Posted by Jarrett on Aug 4, 2020 7:54:48 AM


Isaias made landfall in North Carolina late last night as a Category 1 Hurricane, with maximum sustained winds of 85 mph. Currently weakened to Tropical Storm strength, Isaias is now tracking northward along the East Coast, bringing threats of Storm Surge, Winds, Rainfall, and Tornadoes along with it. Isaias is expected to move through the Mid-Atlantic over the course of today, reaching the Northeast by evening and eastern Canada by Wednesday morning. Transit is being impacted along and just west of the I-95 corridor, with Tropical Storm Warnings are in effect for North Carolina, Virginia, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Maine. 

As always, there is some uncertainty in hurricane track, size, and intensity. 

State breakdown below:

North Carolina: 15-25 mph sustained winds with gusts up to 35 mph, and 1 inch of additional rainfall unfolding this morning

Virginia: 45-55 mph sustained winds with gusts up to 70 mph, 1-3 feet of storm surge in prone areas, 1 inch of additional rainfall, and conditions favorable for tornadoes through this evening. 

Maryland: 30-40 mph sustained winds with gusts up to 50 mph, 1-3 feet of storm surge in prone areas, and 3-6 inches of additional rainfall until early this afternoon.

New Jersey/New York: 40-50 mph sustained winds with gusts up to 70 mph, 1-3 feet of storm surge in prone areas, and conditions somewhat favorable for tornadoes expected until early this evening.

Connecticut/Rhode Island/Massachusetts: 23-35 mph sustained winds with gusts up to 55 mph, 1 inch of additional rainfall,  and conditions somewhat favorable for tornadoes expected the evening and overnight. 

New Hampshire/Maine: 20-30 mph sustained winds with gusts up to 45 mph, 1 inch of additional rainfall, and conditions somewhat favorable for tornadoes expected the evening and overnight. 

Isaias is the earliest named ninth Atlantic tropical cyclone, with the previous record set by Irene is 2005. Typically the ninth named tropical system occurs in the Atlantic basin in early October, meaning this year's pace is over two months ahead of average.
