The mammoth waves were spotted early Wednesday in the storm's northeast quadrant, said the NHC's Tropical Analysis and Forecast Branch, which has been documenting Florence's waves all week.

For this reason, all warnings and storm surveillance for the Lesser Antilles have been raised.

According to the NHC, maximum sustained winds remain near 60 miles per hour (95 km/h) with higher gusts and gradual weakening is forecast during the next few days.

The storm was moving northwest on Tuesday but was expected to turn north and then possibly even east as it progressed. The tropical storm is tracking to the west at 20 miles per hour with top winds of 60 miles per hour with higher gusts. As the system progresses westward into the eastern Caribbean Sea, more organised convection trailing Isaac is expected to affect Barbados, bringing moderate to heavy showers and occasional gusty winds from early Thursday morning and into Friday. A watch is typically issued 48 hours before tropical-storm-force winds are expected to arrive, which makes outside preparations hard or risky - and Tropical-storm-force winds are possible within the tropical storm watch area today.

Mapp, who spoke with the National Weather Service and Virgin Islands Emergency Management Agency officials again this morning, said two to four inches of rain are expected on St. Croix beginning Thursday evening.

No storm warnings have been posted yet for the territory, but tropical storm warnings are in effect for Martinique, Dominica and Guadeloupe.

Some coastal flooding is possible in areas of onshore winds. Now a major hurricane with winds of 115 miles an hour and increasing, the National Hurricane Center says Florence's forecast track will take the system over the southwestern Atlantic Ocean between Bermuda and the Bahamas Tuesday and Wednesday, and Florence will approach the coast of SC or North Carolina on Thursday.

Subtropical Storm Joyce formed at 5PM Thursday with 45 miles per hour wind and is to the northwest of Helene.

On that path Isaac will move across the central Lesser Antilles and into the Caribbean on Thursday. Tropical storm watches are up in Antigua, Montserrat, St. Kitts & Nevis, St. Martin, St. Maarten, and Saba & St. Eustatius. "The threat of damaging winds, flooding rain, high surf, and storm surge still remains". "This rainfall may cause life-threatening flash floods".
