SYNOPSIS:  

As Isaac continues to move westward, there are areas of convection associated with the system which has the potential of producing moderate to heavy rainfall across portions of the Lesser Antilles. As a result, showers and possible isolated thunderstorms are likely over St. Maarten this evening into tomorrow. Minor flooding is possible in area prone to flooding as some of these showers may be heavy.

Sea conditions will continue to be rough with waves peaking near 8 feet tonight and will gradually subside through Friday as Isaac moves farther away from the area.  Sea bathers and small craft operators should remain in port.

STATE OF THE SEA: Moderate to Rough   WAVES/SWELLS: up to 8 feet

SPECIAL FEATURE: 

At 5:00 pm, the center of Tropical Storm Isaac was located near latitude 14.9 north, longitude 63.2 west or about 220 miles south of St Maarten. Isaac is moving toward the west near 16 mph with maximum sustained winds near 40 mph with higher gusts. Gradual weakening is forecast over the next few days and Isaac could degenerate into a tropical wave during that time.     

Tropical storm Helene heads for the Azores Islands.

Hurricane Florence is moving closer the Carolinas bringing life-threatening storm surge and rainfall.

Tropical Storm Joyce is becoming less organized.

The St. Maarten Meteorological Department will continue to monitor the progress of all these systems and keep you updated.

OUTLOOK through Saturday evening: Partly cloudy to cloudy and breezy with isolated showers.
