Tropical Storm Isaias formed in the Caribbean Wednesday night — becoming the 2020 Atlantic hurricane season’s ninth named storm.

With winds of up to 50 mph, Isaias was churning through the northern Caribbean and was located about 155 miles south of Ponce, Puerto Rico as of 11 p.m., according to U.S. National Hurricane Center.

The storm’s current track takes the storm over the island of Hispaniola on Thursday, where it’s expected to weaken over land, before regaining strength on Friday, forecasters predicted.

Tropical Storm Warnings were issued Wednesday for a number of islands in the path of Isaias, including Hispaniola, Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands.

In addition to wind, Isaias is forecast to soak some locations with up to 8 inches of rain and batter coasts with strong surf.

Parts of Florida could be in the path of the storm with the potential for tropical storm-force winds by late Friday, forecasters said.
