Heavy rains and winds from Tropical Storm Isaias struck Florida early Sunday morning, as officials prepared for the downgraded hurricane to make its way up the East Coast.

“We’ll start seeing impacts tonight,” Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis warned at a news conference on Saturday. “Don’t be fooled by the downgrade.

Isaias was downgraded from a hurricane Saturday after wreaking havoc on the Caribbean, where it uprooted trees, destroyed crops and homes and caused widespread flooding.

As of Sunday at 8 a.m., the tropical storm was making its way up the Atlantic coast at around eight miles per hour, with wind gusts of 65 miles per hour, the National Hurricane Center said.

The storm is not expected to gain strength in the coming days, forecasts said, contradicting earlier predictions.

Still, Florida’s eastern shore should expect up to four feet of flooding in some places. Heavy rains may extended as far north as New England, The Weather Channel said.

The storm is not expected to make actual landfall in the continental United State until Tuesday in South Carolina.

Philadelphia Weather: Scattered Showers, Thunderstorms Pose Threat For Flash Flooding On Thursday

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – A stalled frontal boundary just to our south will slowly lift north and generate scattered showers and thunderstorms, both in the morning and afternoon on Thursday. The most coverage will be across the shore, South Jersey and Delaware.

The already saturated grounds may still be overwhelmed from Tuesday’s tropical storm, leading to flooding in spots as rain moves over these areas.

There’s a marginal risk of severe weather for Central and Southern Delaware. A severe thunderstorm warning was also issued for parts of South Jersey.
