.SITUATION OVERVIEW…
IT IS VITAL THAT YOU DO NOT FOCUS ON THE EXACT FORECAST TRACK. TO
DO SO COULD RESULT IN BAD DECISIONS AND PLACE YOU OR THOSE YOU ARE
RESPONSIBLE FOR AT GREATER RISK.

A GENERAL CONCERN SHOULD BE MAINLY FOR THE LIKELIHOOD OF TROPICAL
STORM FORCE WINDS ACROSS SOUTH FLORIDA WITH A SLIGHT POTENTIAL FOR
HURRICANE FORCE WINDS ALONG THE GULF COAST AND EXTREME SOUTH AND
SOUTHEAST MIAMI-DADE COUNTY AT THIS TIME. SHOULD THAT POTENTIAL BE
REALIZED IT WOULD MATERIALIZE WITHIN 18 TO 30 HOURS FROM NOW.
THEREFORE…A HURRICANE WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT FOR PORTIONS
OF THOSE AREAS.

THERE IS ALSO THE CONCERN FOR SIGNIFICANT FLOODING ACROSS
PORTIONS OF SOUTH FLORIDA SUNDAY THROUGH MONDAY AS THE SYSTEM
APPROACHES AND PASSES BY THE AREA. TOTAL RAINFALL AMOUNTS OF 4 TO 8
INCHES ARE CURRENTLY FORECAST THROUGH MONDAY. THERE IS THE
POTENTIAL FOR MUCH HIGHER AMOUNTS IF RAINBANDS TRAIN REPEATEDLY
OVER THE SAME AREA AS ISAAC PASSES SOUTH OF THE AREA. A FLOOD
WATCH WILL LIKELY BE NEEDED FOR ALL OF SOUTH FLORIDA BY SUNDAY.

ISOLATED TO SCATTERED TORNADOES WILL ALSO BE POSSIBLE ACROSS ALL
OF SOUTH FLORIDA, REGARDLESS OF STORM INTENSITY. WHILE A TORNADO
IS POSSIBLE AT ANY TIME FROM TONIGHT THE GREATEST RISK WILL BE
SUNDAY THROUGH MONDAY.

MAJOR COASTAL FLOODING IS POSSIBLE ALONG THE GULF COAST. LOW TO
MODERATE COASTAL FLOODING IS POSSIBLE ALONG PORTIONS OF THE
SOUTHEAST FLORIDA COAST.

SURF WILL CONTINUE TO BUILD TONIGHT INTO SUNDAY…PEAK BY SUNDAY
NIGHT…THEN STEADILY SUBSIDE MONDAY THROUGH TUESDAY ALONG THE
ATLANTIC BEACHES OF SOUTHEAST FLORIDA. ALONG THE GULF COAST…SURF
WILL QUICKLY BUILD LATE SUNDAY NIGHT INTO MONDAY MORNING AND PEAK BY
MONDAY AFTERNOON. THE COMBINATION OF SURF AND ONSHORE WINDS WILL
RESULT IN LIFE THREATENING RIP CURRENTS ALONG WITH MODERATE TO MAJOR
BEACH EROSION ALONG THE GULF AND ATLANTIC BEACHES.

.PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS…
PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS…

FOR THOSE UNDER A WARNING…NOW IS THE TIME TO RUSH TO COMPLETION
PREPARATIONS FOR THE PROTECTION OF LIFE AND PROPERTY. EVACUATE IF
DIRECTED TO DO SO BY LOCAL OFFICIALS… OR IF YOUR HOME IS
VULNERABLE TO HIGH WINDS OR FLOODING.

ALL COASTAL AND MARINE INTERESTS IN WARNING AREAS SHOULD
COMPLETE PREPARATIONS AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. IF YOU LIVE ON A
BOAT…MAKE FINAL PREPARATIONS NOW AND SECURE YOUR VESSEL
BEFORE LEAVING. BE SURE TO ACCOUNT FOR THE POSSIBLE CLOSURE
OF BRIDGES AND CAUSEWAYS.

REGARDING ANY COASTAL WATERS UNDER A WARNING…SMALL CRAFT
SHOULD REMAIN IN PORT AND WELL SECURED.

FOR THOSE UNDER A WATCH…CONTINUE WITH YOUR PREPARATIONS
AND LISTEN FOR POSSIBLE WARNINGS.

REGARDING ANY COASTAL WATERS UNDER A WATCH…SMALL CRAFT
SHOULD RETURN TO PORT OR SEEK SAFE HARBOR. DETERMINE THE
BEST STRATEGY FOR SECURING YOUR CRAFT.
