Just now, Roger Smith said:

Would expect a narrow band of 4-6 inch rainfalls and with the most likely track considered, that narrow band could end up being quite close to the I-95 corridor. Any concern about damaging wind gusts in the northwest flow behind the departing center? Would predict G45-50 kts in the DC area.

Wouldn't seem to me to be a good "pressure gradient" setup like we normally get in the winter with NW wind behind a big storm/front. I am pretty doubtful anybody within the immediate metro area sees 50 knot gusts. 50mph would seem to be the max in the urban corridor - and that might also be generous. Along the Bay might touch those numbers though.

That batch coming north from RIC looks like it means business.

Buoy 41004 pressure is rising again and the wind has shifted to be out of the WSW. Based on wind direction - looks like the center is relatively close to 41004. There's another buoy closer to the coast that has strong winds out of the NE. Center is pretty close to the coast it seems.

Extrapolated pressure of 985.5mb so far from recon. I know those tend to run a few mb low. But still - seems to confirm what that buoy was seeing at the surface. Winds at or near hurricane force too from SFMR. This is probably a cat 1 hurricane at this point.

Data from NOAA Doppler weather radars and the Hurricane Hunter
aircraft indicate that maximum sustained winds have increased to ear
75 mph (120 km/h) with higher gusts.  Some additional strengthening
is possible before landfall. After landfall, only gradual weakening
is anticipated after Isaias makes landfall in the Carolinas and
moves across the U.S. mid-Atlantic region tonight and Tuesday.

I want that map with temps in the mid teens. 
 

Edit: but that’s a dry slot from hell. Anybody that passes over is gonna feel screwed.
