BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC)- How far west will Isaac go?
The model runs over the past 24 hours have been a lot more consistent with regard to one thing. Isaac will make a landfall west of Alabama. The question remains how far west as some models like GFDL suggests a landfall point near Houston, TX. Thoughts this afternoon are that Isaac will make a landfall over southeast Louisiana. Based on this track, a strong onshore flow and feeder band activity should bring strong tidal surge, torrential rain, and a tornado threat to the Alabama Gulf coast. What is concerning forecasters today is the threat that exists for New Orleans.
When will Isaac make landfall?
Based on current forecasts, Isaac should make a landfall Tuesday night near the Mouth of the Mississippi River. Landfall may be just west of the mouth of the Mississippi River.
