Louisiana and Mississippi brace for Isaac; Tropical downpours being felt here
WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Isaac will make landfall overnight near the coast of Mississippi or Louisiana as a hurricane. The center of the storm will stay away from southeastern North Carolina.
But, we are still feeling some indirect effects of the storm. The large circulation has drawn up some tropical moisture and is sending it into the coastal Carolinas right now. This heavy rain will persist on and off through Thursday morning as it interacts with a cold front. Minor flooding will be possible, especially in areas prone to standing water.
Once the front moves through on Thursday, drier air will push in. We expect lots of sunshine by Friday and Saturday.
