According to the National Hurricane Center, the tropical storm Christian track now includes North Carolina.

Raleights (WTVD) – Tropical Storm Isaias has formed south of Puerto Rico, and its projected path currently tracks through the East Coast and North Carolina.

While that path is still a long way and can change very rapidly, at this time it seems that Isis will bring rain to parts of North Carolina at least next week.

Tropical Storm Isais fought Puerto Rico early Thursday with strong winds and heavy rain.

According to the National Hurricane Center, Isis has a wind speed of 60 mph and is moving northwest at 21 miles per hour.

The Christian center is expected to be moved over Hisaniola late Thursday night. When tropical systems run in the mountain Hispaniola region, they are often difficult to predict. The path and strength of the storms will change in the next few days.

The storm cone of uncertainty now includes North Carolina. Current estimates say the storm will be at the strength of a tropical storm when it reaches our shores from Monday night to Tuesday morning.

Stay with the ABC 11 First Alert Weather Team as they monitor this storm and any threats to North Carolina it may face.
