Rem­nants of Isaac dis­si­pate overnight

South Florida Sun-Sentinel (Sunday) - - Nation & World - By Tonya Alanez, David Flesh­ler, Anne Geg­gis South Florida Sun Sentinel

For­mer Trop­i­cal Storm Isaac dis­si­pated overnight and its rem­nants were lo­cated Satur­day a few hun­dred miles south­east of Kingston, Ja­maica, ac­cord­ing to an 8 p.m. up­date from the Na­tional Hur­ri­cane Cen­ter.

Coastal watches and warn­ings have been can­celed.

Slow re­de­vel­op­ment of this sys­tem over the next two days is pos­si­ble, but not highly likely, ac­cord­ing to the Na­tional Weather Ser­vice.

A Hur­ri­cane Hunter air­plane flew through the rem­nants of the storm and was un­able to find a wellde­fined cen­ter, the hur­ri­cane cen­ter said in a 5 a.m. Satur­day ad­vi­sory.

It’s caus­ing cloudi­ness and a few thun­der­storms, ac­cord­ing to the weather ser­vice.

“The wave will likely con­tinue west­ward across the Caribbean Sea over the next few days, pro­duc­ing gusty winds and oc­ca­sional heavy rains over por­tions of His­pan­iola and Ja­maica,” the hur­ri­cane cen­ter said.

Isaac has been a roller coaster of a storm. It started out as a me­an­der­ing de­pres­sion a week ago Fri­day, then notched up to a trop­i­cal storm the fol­low­ing day.

By Sun­day night, Isaac be­came the fifth hur­ri­cane of this year’s At­lantic sea­son, but that only lasted un­til the next day.
