Norcross: Tropical Storm Isaias now forecast to become a hurricane

Local 10 Hurricane Specialist Bryan Norcross breaks down the latest information on Tropical Storm Isaias, which has put South Florida in a Tropical Storm Watch and could produce hurricane-force winds as it moves up the coast.

Watch Bryan’s latest tropical update video above for analysis of the conditions and the National Hurricane Center’s forecast track.

There have been several factors that make it tough to predict what Isaias will look like when Isaias emerges from the mountains of the Dominican Republic and heads toward Florida. Earlier Thursday, Norcross said there were “monstrous question marks” about the storm’s outlook.

The Miami-based Hurricane Center said in its latest advisory that South Florida could see heavy rain and flooding this weekend.
