Tropical Storm Isaias is located around 40 miles southeast of West Palm Beach, Florida and is moving northwest at 8 mph as of 8 a.m. ET.

The storm will move up the east coast of Florida throughout the day, bringing strong winds, storm surge and heavy rainfall to the east coast of the state.

The center of the storm is forecast to hug the coast, and the official National Hurricane Center track has the center within 5-10 miles for much of the afternoon and evening as it moves northward past Port St. Lucie, Melbourne, Titusville and eventually Daytona Beach by early Monday morning.
