UPDATE...
Tropical Storm Isaias offshore the northeast coast of FL early
this morning tracks north during the day. See official National
Hurricane Center advisories for updates and details. Isaias will
provide slightly drier air...compared to the past few days...on
westerly flow. But moisture will be adequate for scattered
showers and a few thunderstorms that favor inland locations.
Current forecasts look good but will evaluate satellite and radar
trends over the morning for any needed adjustments.

eastern Gulf and high pressure building into the western Gulf
