Tropical Storm Isaac has officially weakened to a tropical storm, but with 70 mph winds. It is still a borderline hurricane.
Forecasts show that Issaac will be around 70 mph when it arrives at the Islands, although it might be a lot weaker.
The forecasted track has been pretty consistent, taking it over Dominica on Thursday.
Tropical storm and hurricane watches have been posted. Water, not the wind, will probably be the biggest threat.
Isaac is moving at 16 mph, and is not expected to slow down, so hopefully the rains won’t cause too much flooding on Dominica and surrounding islands. The punch of this storm will be in the tail end, so keep that in mind.
