What will happen here with remnants of Isaac?August 29th, 2012 at 4:35 am by Greg Shoup under Weather
Isaac Will Push Heat Toward Area
The first effect of Isaac for the area may be a little unexpected as hot air which will blow off from the top of storms associated with Isaac begins to filter into our area Thursday afternoon. This will take a quiet and cool pattern and change it into some late August heat and humidity. This warm air will continue to surge into the area through Friday making it very uncomfortable with highs in the 90s and tropical humidity levels.
What Will Happen With Remnants?
The biggest question that still remains for our area is what will happen with the remnants of Issac. Most of our mathematical models have continued to bring the bulk of the moisture into northern Indiana through Sunday. This is still a distinct possibility this weekend, but the latest data indicates that the heaviest rainfall may be just south of our area late Saturday and early Sunday. A second model brings the moisture well south of our area. There is still quite a bit of uncertainty with this track as this system continues to make landfall we will have a little better idea of it’s track over the next 24 to 36 hours. Areas that do see the heavy rainfall could see up to 3″ from this “extra tropical’ system. Of course these rainfall amounts will be minimal compared to areas in the south and southeast which will experience anywhere from 6 to 16 inches of rainfall.
