Sci/Technology & Environment

At 1100 AM AST, the center of Tropical Storm Isaac was located by NOAA Hurricane Hunter aircraft data and surface observations near latitude 14.9 North, longitude 61.8 West. Isaac is moving toward the west near 20 mph.  A westward track with a slower forward motion is forecast to continue for the next few days.  On the forecast track, Isaac should move farther away from Lesser Antilles today, and then move across the eastern and central Caribbean Sea through the weekend.

Maximum sustained winds remain near 45 mph  with higher gusts. Little change in strength is expected over the next several hours as Isaac moves through the Leeward Islands.  Gradual weakening is forecast after that as Isaac moves through the eastern Caribbean.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 160 miles (260 km) from the center.
