The latest from Accuweather:
We can say at this point that there is the potential for periods of heavy rain, severe thunderstorms, gusty winds, flooding, rough surf and heavy seas as Issac turns to the north and moves near or over Florida spanning Monday into Wednesday.
At present forward speed (approximately 20 mph), the greatest impact in the Tampa area is likely to occur Monday afternoon into Tuesday with conditions potentially deteriorating during Sunday night, depending on the nature of spiral bands preceding the system.
The worst case scenario from a Tampa standpoint would be if Isaac were to take a rare path by swinging over the Gulf of Mexico, strengthen, then curve northeastward toward or just north of the city on the Florida west coast.
