SAVANNAH, Ga. (WTOC) - Tropical Storm Isaias continues to parallel the Florida Space Coast, spreading the first few rain bands into the Coastal Empire and Lowcountry early Monday morning.
5 AM: Isaias is moving north-northwest with sustained winds of 70 MPH; just shy of hurricane status. Higher gusts have been measured by a Hurricane Reconnaissance plane.
Locally, weather conditions are forecast to go downhill through the morning with the stormiest weather forecast between mid-morning and mid-afternoon along the coastline and I-95 corridor.
There will be a sharp gradient in impacts today - most significant at the beach with no significant impacts at all across our inland communities.
The forecast quickly improves from southwest to northeast late this afternoon and evening. Typical summer-time weather returns tomorrow.
