SITUATION OVERVIEW
------------------

Tropical Storm Isaias will continue to move northwestward and away 
from the South Florida waters this afternoon. As a result, sustained 
tropical storm force winds will stay offshore and not affect any 
land areas of Southeast Florida from Palm Beach County southward. 
Occasional gusts to tropical storm force are possible with showers 
and remnant squalls rotating around the back side of Isaias across 
South Florida this afternoon and early this evening. 

A localized rainfall flooding threat continues for Southeast Florida 
where any repeated rounds of showers and squalls can become 
established, with urban and street flooding being the primary 
threat. This threat will diminish tonight, but be present once again 
Monday and Tuesday as trailing moisture from Isaias moves northward 
across the region and helps to enhance any localized development of 
showers and thunderstorms.

High surf, beach erosion, and dangerous rip currents will continue 
today, most notable at the Palm Beach County coast where residual 
wave energy from the storm offshore will persist. This threat will 
begin to decrease tonight. 

Hazardous marine conditions will continue through much of today 
across the South Florida Atlantic waters. Winds should subside with 
gradually improving marine conditions beginning tonight.

POTENTIAL IMPACTS
-----------------

* WIND:
Little to no additional impacts are anticipated at this time 
across South Florida. Occasional gusts to around 45 mph are possible
in showers today.

* SURGE:

Little to no additional impacts are anticipated at this time although
localized inundation of vulnerable areas along the shoreline are
possible in Palm Beach County where a Coastal Flood Advisory remains in
effect.

Elsewhere across South Florida, little to no impact is anticipated.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS
----------------------------------

* EVACUATIONS:
Do not enter evacuated areas until officials have given the all clear 
to return.
