Good morning...Issac is elongated NW to SE on satellite imagery and appears to be a redux of Ike but either a strong tropical storm or weak hurricane...Mike's right; this is NOT Katrina and will not have the impact that Katrina wreaked on LA/MS...Issac will produce the real possibility of flooding and I have faith New Orleans is ready. There is a weak trough along the lee side of the Appalachain (never can spell it right either) with height falls along the north central and northeast coast...neutral west. Upper ridge axis remains west to east but is further inland than previous runs. All the models are in the same camp now and close together and I see nothing to suggest otherwise; we're 36 hours away on the fastest 48 hours on the slowest. As for whether it will be a hurricane...maybe...but Issac is taken on an appearance that is more of a hybrid/subtropical and the overall structure that isn't conducive to strengthening.
