SITUATION OVERVIEW

------------------

Tropical Storm Isaias will continue to move northwestward and away
from the South Florida waters this afternoon. As a result, sustained
tropical storm force winds will stay offshore and not affect any
land areas of Southeast Florida from Palm Beach County southward.
Occasional gusts to tropical storm force are possible with showers
and remnant squalls rotating around the back side of Isaias across
South Florida this afternoon and early this evening.
A localized rainfall flooding threat continues for Southeast Florida
where any repeated rounds of showers and squalls can become
established, with urban and street flooding being the primary
threat. This threat will diminish tonight, but be present once again
Monday and Tuesday as trailing moisture from Isaias moves northward
across the region and helps to enhance any localized development of
showers and thunderstorms.
High surf, beach erosion, and dangerous rip currents will continue
today, most notable at the Palm Beach County coast where residual
wave energy from the storm offshore will persist. This threat will
begin to decrease tonight.
Hazardous marine conditions will continue through much of today
across the South Florida Atlantic waters. Winds should subside with
gradually improving marine conditions beginning tonight.

POTENTIAL IMPACTS

-----------------

* WIND:
Little to no additional impacts are anticipated at this time
across South Florida. Occasional gusts to around 45 mph are possible
in showers today.

* SURGE:
Little to no additional impacts are anticipated at this time although
localized inundation of vulnerable areas along the shoreline are
possible in Palm Beach County where a Coastal Flood Advisory remains in
effect.
Elsewhere across South Florida, little to no impact is anticipated.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS

----------------------------------

* EVACUATIONS:

to return.

How to prepare and stay safe

  • During a hurricane
    Avoid walking or driving through flood waters.
    Just 6 inches of moving water can knock you down, and fast-moving water can sweep your vehicle away.
    Be extra careful when walking outside.
    Storm damage such as downed power lines and fallen debris could injure you.
  • 6 hours before arrival
    Close storm shutters if possible and stay away from windows.
    Flying glass from broken windows could injure you.
    Turn your refrigerator or freezer to the coldest setting and open only when necessary.
    If you lose power, food will last longer.
  • 6 to 12 hours before arrival
    Turn on your TV/radio, or check your local government’s website frequently.
    You’ll get the latest weather updates and emergency instructions.
    Charge your phone.
    You’ll have a full battery if you lose power.
  • 12 to 36 hours before arrival
    Bring in outdoor furniture and other items that could blow away.
    These may become a safety hazard.
    Bookmark your local government’s website.
    This gives you quick access to storm updates and emergency instructions.
  • 36 to 48 hours before arrival
    Build or restock your emergency preparedness kit.
    Include a flashlight, batteries, cash, and first aid supplies.
    For example, you can use phone, text, social media, or email.
    Create an evacuation plan with your family.
    You may have to leave quickly.
