At this time no tropical storm/hurricane watches or warnings are in effect for Barbados.

Joyce could become a tropical storm within the next day or so.

Far from this hurricane parade on the other side of the globe, Tropical Storm Olivia is flying solo east of Hawaii. A Tropical Storm Watch is in effect for Antigua and Barbuda, Montserrat, and St. Kitts and Nevis. The tropical storm is tracking to the west at 20 miles per hour with top winds of 60 miles per hour with higher gusts. The winds may increase a bit Saturday night, possibly gusting over 40mph, especially in the northern/eastern CSRA.

Isaac's death knell was sounded around 5 a.m. Saturday when the National Hurricane Center's aircraft was unable to find a well-defined center and as a result the center reported that the storm had "dissipated".

"We are entering the peak of hurricane season and we know well the unpredictability and power of these storms", Mr Cooper said.

"At 2:00 pm today, the centre of Tropical Storm Isaac was located near 14.9W 62.5N or about 130 km west-southwest of Dominica, moving W at 30 km/h with maximum sustained winds of 75 km/h", the Met Office said.




The National Hurricane Center said up to 3 inches of rain could fall in Puerto Rico and Hispaniola.

"Winds are likely to gust to 55-65 miles per hour quite widely in the warning area, with possible gusts of 70-80 miles per hour in exposure". It does have the potential to slow down as it approaches land from Thursday through Friday.

Meanwhile, Isaac is a tropical storm that will eventually die out as it moves closer to the Yucatán Peninsula, according to Bridges.

Isaac, with winds of 50 miles per hour, had weakened as it tracked westward toward the Caribbean, according to the National Hurricane Center, and may not survive beyond the next few days.

Surf swells generated by Isaac are affecting portions of the Lesser Antilles.

The storm, presently called Invest 95L, is predicted to bring one to three inches of rain to the Houston area, according to meteorology blog Space City Weather.
