Isaias made landfall as a hurricane in southern North Carolina -- near Ocean Isle Beach -- around 11:10 p.m. Monday night with 85 mph winds.

Tuesday (Northeast U.S.)

Throughout the day Tuesday, Isaias will quickly move away from the Carolinas and move through the northeast U.S. as a tropical storm. 

Flooding rain, strong winds and tornadoes are expected along the northeast U.S. coast Tuesday, impacting Washington, D.C., New York and Philadelphia.

Isaias will weaken Tuesday night as the storm moves into Canada.

As the storm continues to move northeast, the counter-clockwise flow around Isaias is helping to pull dry air into north Georgia, which will reduce rain chances and make it feel pleasant Tuesday in metro Atlanta.
