Tropical Storm Isaac continues to weaken as it approaches the Caribbean

Tropical Storm Isaac is now located over the eastern Caribbean Sea and is forecast to move south of Jamaica on Sunday, as a Tropical Depression.

Joyce could become a tropical storm within the next day or so.

On the heels of Hurricane Lane in the Pacific, Tropical Storm Olivia, now with winds as high as 65 miles per hour, is expected to move through the main Hawaiian islands of Hawaii, Maui and Oahu Tuesday evening, according to the Central Pacific Hurricane Center.

A tropical storm warning continues for Martinique, Dominica and Guadeloupe.

The public is encouraged to continue monitoring the Met Office via its social media accounts and website at www.metoffice.gov.tt for updates. At that time, Isaac is expected to be a tropical storm with top winds of 50 miles per hour.

A Tropical Storm Warning means that tropical storm conditions are expected somewhere within the warning area within 36 hours.

A NOAA Hurricane Hunter plane that investigated the oncoming Tropical Storm Isaac Wednesday evening and found that the system has weakened a bit, according to the National Weather Service.

Elsewhere in the nation, the East Coast is preparing for Hurricane Florence, which will be a major storm.

"Gradual weakening is forecast while Florence moves farther inland during the next couple of days, and it is expected to weaken to a tropical depression" by Saturday night, the center said in a bulletin.

That's almost double the wave heights documented on Tuesday, when the NHC said satellites had observed "an expansive area of wave heights 12 feet or greater" circulating around Hurricane Florence and peak waves of 45 feet near its center.

Surf swells generated by Isaac are affecting portions of the Lesser Antilles. While development into a tropical depression is not expected since the system is nearly onshore, heavy rainfall and gusty winds are likely across portions of northeastern Mexico and Texas through Saturday.

American Airlines is waiving rebooking fees for 14 Caribbean islands including Antigua, Puerto Rico and St. Lucia for flights scheduled September 12 to 14.
