Tropical storm watches and warnings now stretch from Florida to North Carolina's Outer Banks as Tropical Storm Isaias hovers off the Florida coast.

Isaias will pick up forward speed and accelerate into the Northeast U.S., likely tracking very close to I-95 from Washington, D.C. to Philadelphia to New York City and then moving into New England.

North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper said he's activated up to 150 National Guard soldiers to help with the storm.

"The forecast has the storm moving quickly, which we hope means the rain and wind won't last as long," he tweeted Sunday afternoon. "But a lot of rain is expected to fall at once, so be on alert for flash flooding and river flooding."

Widespread power outages should be expected, the governor added.

Isaias will gradually weaken as it moves north.

On Tuesday and Tuesday night, Isaias will bring heavy rain to much of the Northeast, from Washington, D.C., to Philadelphia to New York City.

Parts of the mid-Atlantic could see four to six inches of rain, likely triggering flash flooding.
