It would not surprise me to see Isabel die a quick death on its way across the Leeward Islands. The mid/upper level low currently in that area has slowed to a crawl and has remained intact. The upper level low to the east of Isabel is following along as planned (currently providing good outflow to the east). It seems reasonable to me that these two ULLs will soon begin a squeeze play. Isabel appears to be residing in an ever shrinking envelope. If that envelope becomes too restrictive, Isabel's center will be driven southwest and exposed while the bulk of the convection is sheared off toward the north and east. I hate to be so graphic - especially when describing the demise such a beautiful storm. Hard to imagine such a sordid scenario in light of the storms current intensity, but you never know. IMHO.
