Isaac Dissipates, Could Redevelop in the Caribbean
After topping out as a Category 1 Hurricane, Isaac has dissipated in the Caribbean Sea.
Isaac became the fifth hurricane of the Atlantic season before weakening to a tropical storm and moving through the Lesser Antilles. Since then, the weakening trend has continued with Isaac.
Isaac could redevelop into a tropical depression or storm once more. We can’t completely let our guard down just yet. The National Hurricane Center is giving Isaac’s remnants a low chance of tropical development in the next few days.
Until then, Isaac’s remnants will bring locally heavy rain and thunderstorm activity to the Greater Antilles region including the Dominican Republic, Haiti, Cuba, Jamaica, and the Cayman Islands.
We will keep you updated on the progress of this tropical wave and if there are any changes in the expectations.
