ORLANDO, Fla. – After already causing problems for Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic earlier this week then blowing through the Bahamas, Tropical Storm Isaias is continuing its slow trek toward Florida.
The system was a Category 1 hurricane for almost two days before it was downgraded back to a tropical storm Saturday afternoon. The storm is expected to impact Central Florida as a tropical storm Sunday into early Monday.
As it does, parts of Central Florida are bracing for potential storm impacts.
Here’s what you can expect in Central Florida on Sunday:
Tropical storm warnings are in effect for Brevard, Volusia, Flagler, Seminole, Orange and Osceola counties. Most of the impacts will be on the lower side across inland Central Florida. The biggest impacts will occur along the coast. Isaias could make landfall somewhere in Indian River or Brevard county Sunday night.
Gusty tropical downpours will move inland from Isaias’ outer bands throughout the day. It won’t be a washout inland, but brief periods of nasty weather will be likely. Wind gusts inland within the downpours could reach tropical storm force, greater than 39 mph.
The worst weather clings to the coast and arrives Sunday evening.
