East Texas could see a weakening Isaac

Hurricane Isaac has made landfall last night along the southern Louisiana coast, near New Orleans. Even though the official forecast from the National Hurricane Center takes Isaac up through North Central Louisiana. According to sources, East Texas could see a weakening Isaac on Thursday. If Isaac does track through the Piney Woods on Thursday, this would mean areas along and east of Highway 59 could receive several inches of rain to go along with gusty winds. It bears repeating that this is only a worst case scenario, but is one that we must take note of. Obviously, if Isaac stays in Louisiana or does not cross into Texas until it gets up towards Shreveport, then our affects locally will be minimal. A shift in the position or track of Isaac by as little as 30 to 50 miles goes a long way in to the local conditions we could experience here in Deep East Texas later this week. Rainfall potential looks to be highest along and east of Mount Enterprise to San Augustine to Hemphill line. Areas west of Highway 59 could see one to two inches of rain.
