  • The forecast track for Tropical Storm Isaac at 11 a.m

By the time it moves through the central Lesser Antilles, Isaac is expected to be near hurricane strength before weakening on Friday.

A small-craft warning means in this case that surface winds greater than or equal to 25 knots and seas equal to or greater than 3 metres (10ft) are already affecting or expected to affect the marine area.

The storm was about 100 miles southeast of Wilmington and had maximum sustained winds of 100 mph, which is slightly weaker than earlier Thursday, the briefing said.

Mapp, who spoke with the National Weather Service and Virgin Islands Emergency Management Agency officials again this morning, said two to four inches of rain are expected on St. Croix beginning Thursday evening.

"There are no coastal watches or warnings in effect", said the NHC in its 11 a.m. September 12 update.

The hurricane center said Isaac is expected to weaken in the coming few days.

Hurricane Florence's sustained wind speeds have lessened slightly to 105 miles per hour, but the storm is already bringing surges and tropical storm winds to the North Carolina shore, the National Hurricane Center said in an 11 a.m. briefing. When Isaac reaches the west-central Caribbean Sea in a couple of days, the shear may relax somewhat and the global models suggest that there will be an increase in mid-level moisture.

The storm is about 775 miles east of the Lesser Antilles. A Category 4 hurricane at its strongest, Olivia spent about a week swishing around in the Pacific Ocean without making landfall before it weakened into a tropical storm.

Bridges, airports and ferry services in the affected areas face closure if winds grow too violent, while roads and rail routes might also be cut off.

Hurricane Florence isn't the only storm threatening lives and property around the world. A hurricane hunter plane is scheduled to investigate the system Thursday. "There will be some rain but at the moment it doesn't look as though that's going to be the issue".

Forecasters are predicting it will feel "very warm and humid" when the storm arrives. It should dissipate by early next week, the hurricane center said.
