Hurricane Isaias is battling back some shear Friday morning after seeing some weakening in the early hours, still anticipated to remain a hurricane through the Bahamas but the confidence in the intensity remains an issue.

The interaction with the Dominican Republic didn't seem to have much of an effect on the storm which now has a few days with minimal land interaction to pick up a little steam, peak winds expected to be around 100 mph.

The convection early Friday morning doesn't look quite as drastic as it did Thursday afternoon, however, it likely will flair back up again through the day on Friday.

The confidence in the short term forecast in the track is fairly high, but after the weekend that confidence begins to drop in terms of speed and intensity.

Models are split on how fast the storm moves toward the east coast, which will then obviously impact how strong the storm could be as it moves to the Carolinas.

Those with interests along the east coast will want to closely monitor this storm over the next several days as the finer details of the forecast begin to emerge.
