Discussion

High pressure continues to dominate the scene around here so sunshine should be quite prevalent for the next few days. There will, however, be a slight cooling trend as the week progresses as there will likely be an increasing onshore flow. As far as Isaac is concerned, it continues on a track that will bring it onto the Louisiana coastline by later tonight. It is still undergoing an intensification process with central pressure now down to 976 millibars and its movement to the NW has slowed down to only 6 mph. Tremendous rainfall amounts - perhaps on the order of 20 to 25 inches - are possible across parts of Louisiana over the next couple of days given the slow movement of Isaac. For more details on Isaac view today's video.
