Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 105 miles (165 km) from the center.

However, a tropical storm watch remains in effect for Antigua, Montserrat, St. Kitts and Nevis, Saba and St. Eustatius while St. Martin and St. Maarten were added to the watch on Wednesday afternoon. The tropical storm is tracking to the west at 20 miles per hour with top winds of 60 miles per hour with higher gusts.

The Hurricane Centre says Isaac is almost completely devoid of deep convection at the moment and is not trackable in radar data from Guadeloupe and Martinique. Coastal Flooding: Outside the Storm Surge Watch area, minor coastal flooding could occur around the time of each high tide Thursday and Friday. Winds are expected to first reach tropical storm strength on Thursday, making outside preparations hard or unsafe. The Norwegian Escape, now at sea, will skip a call in Bermuda, which is not in the path of the storm but is expecting a lot of rain, and replace it with one in the Bahamas.

The US National Hurricane Centre in its 8 a.m. tropical storm update reported Tropical Storm Isaac's centre was 25 miles east of Dominica and 80 miles southeast of Guadeloupe. Gradual weakening is forecast after that as Isaac moves through the eastern Caribbean. The winds of Isaac are not expected to affect the Virgin Islands.

The National Hurricane Center said in its 11 a.m. ET advisory that up to 5 inches of rain could fall in Puerto Rico.

Less rain is predicted for St. Thomas, St. John and Water Island.
