Minimal risk of tropical development now expected from this break-away piece of energy from Isaac. The low pressure center is around 850 millibars or 5,000 ft of altitude, rather than surface based as is needed for tropical systems. Also the low pressure center is located well apart from the area of cloud cover which is to the southwest. Lastly, this system is expected to be absorbed into a cold front late this upcoming weekend, and swept away across the Florida Peninsula off into the Atlantic Ocean. It may be a cloudy or stormy weekend for Florida as a result, but I don’t expect any significant tropical activity from this low pressure any more.
