Isaac is now a tropical storm but still remains very dangerous.

Isaac continues to produce tremendous storm damage and flooding rains along the Gulf Coast.  Here is the latest view from space.  

ZZZZZ

But the rainfall and wind gusts from our WeatherBug network in Louisiana  give a sense of the power and rains this storm is generating.

ZZZZZ

Even though Isaac is now a tropical storm, it's wide area and slow movement mean more torrential rains through the night for the central Gulf Coast, especially Louisiana.

ZZZZZ

The track later in the week and into the weekend will take this tropical moisture into the Great Lakes and the latest projection of rain across the country in the next five days mean what is left of Isaac (Still should be called "Tropical Rainstorm Isaac" don't you think?) could lead to weekend flooding in states such as Indiana.

ZZZZZ

The impact here is still very uncertain and will depend if Isaac's leftover moisture hooks up with a weather front late Sunday into Monday and then could produce some heavy rain showers around the D.C. area. There's NO SIGN of any real threat for us right now. 

ZZZZZ

Stay with us and we'll be sure to keep you posted and enjoy the weather of the next few days as folks in New Orleans go through another very dangerous hurricane now tropical storm.
