Wind gusts have been in the 40-50 mph range this morning mostly across our area. At 6:30 a.m. there was a 53 mph gust in Norfolk.

Rainfall totals as of 6:30 a.m. were more than 3 inches in Newport News, Suffolk, and almost 3 inches in Williamsburg.

Temporary tidal flooding may occur for southern Virginia Beach this morning. As the south wind decreases this early afternoon, the water levels will return to normal, hopefully by this evening.

Water levels may approach 2.5 feet.

Isaias will move away from the our area late this morning and by the afternoon the wind speeds, and effects of the storm will be gone. At noon, the strongest gust we could see will be at 25 mph. By 2 PM, the center of the storm will be south of New York City, likely across central New Jersey.
