Hurricane Isaac Path, NOAA: Tropical Storm Isaac Path Changes, Grows Stronger

NEW ORLEANS, Louisiana — At 5 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time on Monday August 27, 2012, NOAA’s National Hurricane Center in Miami, Florida, issued a tropical weather outlook public advisory due to the Atlantic Tropical Cyclone Activity of Tropical Storm Isaac in the Caribbean and two tropical waves in the tropical Atlantic.

NOAA says that Tropical Storm Isaac has grown stronger to 70 miles per hour and that Tropical Storm Isaac’s Path has moved more westward it strengthens over the Gulf of Mexico.

NOAA says that Tropical Storm Isaac poses a significant storm surge threat to the northern U.S. Gulf Coast:

Southeast Louisiana and Mississippi: 6 to 12 feet.
Alabama: 6 to 9 feet.
South Central Louisiana: 3 to 6 feet.
Florida West Coast including Apalachee Bay: 1 to 3 feet.

NOAA’s National Hurricane Center stormtracker forecasts that Tropical Storm Isaac, predicted to become Hurricane Isaac by Monday night, will take a more northwesterly track and arrive just off the coast of New Orleans, Louisiana Wednesday morning.

The northeast quadrant of Tropical Storm Issac, the most powerful area of a hurricane in the northern hemisphere, is predicted to be over Alabama-Florida Border Tuesday and New Orleans, Louisiana on Tuesday night as Hurricane Isaac passes over the Gulf of Mexico.

The majority of the spaghetti models predict that Hurricane Isaac will head northwest on Tuesday and make landfall as a Category 2 Hurricane on the U.S. Gulf Coast anywhere from as far west as the Texas-Louisiana to as far east as Mobile, Alabama.
