The Tropical Storm Isaias trail now includes North Carolina, based on the National Hurricane Center



RALEIGH (WTVD) – Tropical Storm Isaias was formed south of Puerto Rico, and its projected route now extends to the east coast and through North Carolina.

While this road is still a long way off and could change drastically, it now looks like Isaiah will at least bring rain to parts of North Carolina next week.

Tropical Storm Isaiah hit Puerto Rico early Thursday, receiving strong winds and heavy rain.

According to the National Hurricane Center, Isaiah maintained a wind of 60 miles per hour and was moving west-northwest at a speed of 21 miles per hour.

Isaiah’s center is expected to move through Hispaniola late Thursday. When tropical systems move through the mountainous Hisponiola region, they are often difficult to predict. The path and strength of the storms are likely to change in the coming days.

The cone of storm uncertainty encompasses North Carolina. Current forecasts say the storm will be the strength of a tropical storm when it reaches our shores Monday night through Tuesday morning.

Stay tuned to the ABC11 First Alert Weather team as they monitor this storm and any threats it may pose to North Carolina.
