Tropical Storm Isaac Forms in East Atlantic
04:30 AM EDT - 22 September 2000
First off, Tropical Storm Helene has not strengthened, and it is now nearing the Florida coast near Pensacola. At this time it has actually lost its punch as it approached the coast and is down to 50MPH winds. The strongest activity remains to the east of the center. Weather will be nasty there for a while.
Tropical Storm Issac, what once was TD#13, now exists in the far Eastern Atlantic as a 50MPH Tropical Storm. It is looking very good on satellite this morning. I haven't seen anything like this so far this year since Alberto. Its distance, however, will give us plenty of time to watch it. It should generally head to the west, and should not encounter shear, at least in the short term.
