Remnants of Isaac dissipate overnight
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.
