Everyone's attention has been focused on Florence, but the statistical peak of the Atlantic hurricane is certainly living up to its reputation this year.
The enormous waves were recorded in the northeast quadrant of the hurricane, which is the strongest area of the storm.
Rain chances do gradually increase Sunday to 50 percent by the afternoon.
That's almost double the wave heights documented on Tuesday, when the NHC said satellites had observed "an expansive area of wave heights 12 feet or greater" circulating around Hurricane Florence and peak waves of 45 feet near its center.
While a tropical storm watch is in effect for St. Kitts and Nevis, at Pond Hill, Nevis, forecaster Harry W. Hallstrom said, "Isaac is getting ripped apart with wind shear".

Finally, rather than offering 3D touch, the iPhone XR will use a haptic touch system similar to the recent MacBook Pro trackpads. The only thing that's missing is a secondary telephoto lens but it could still take Portrait shots with depth control.
The path of Hurricane Florence is still set squarely on the Carolinas, but early Wednesday it shifted south and west, encompassing more of SC and western North Carolina.
The National Hurricane Center states that these storm surges are highly likely along portions of the coastlines of North Carolina and SC.
For people living inland in the Carolinas, the moment of maximum peril from flash flooding could arrive days later, because it takes time for rainwater to drain into rivers and for those streams to crest. Conversely, the southern/western areas of the CSRA will see the least rain/wind.
A National Weather Service satellite monitoring Hurricane Florence has recorded a wave reaching 83 feet in the storm churning in the Atlantic Ocean.
"Sustained hurricane-force winds occurring along the North Carolina coast", the briefing said.

Trump Administration Will Declare 'Superfluous' International Criminal Court at The Hague 'Illegitimate'
Trump last week ordered that $25 million U.S. earmarked for the care of Palestinians in East Jerusalem be directed elsewhere. Palestinian foreign minister Riyad al-Malki visited the ICC in May and called on it to open an immediate investigation.
That is causing the so called "cone of uncertainty" to expand. Earlier forecasts showed that the storm was slated to directly hit around North and SC.
Forecasters on Friday warned of flash flooding and wind gusts of 25 to 40 miles per hour.
That said, the storm is still expected to stall once it hits the Wilmington coast, with weather officials early Thursday raising the expected total rainfall for Wilmington to 35 inches - weather officials had predicted 30 inches for Wilmington in briefings released Wednesday.
Helene is due to hit the United Kingdom between Monday night and Tuesday morning, but is likely to be short-lived.
The National Hurricane Center says Hurricane Florence has finally made landfall near Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina.
Some pockets of moderate to heavy showers and occasional gusty winds are likely into Friday, with possible rainfall accumulations of one (1) to two (2) inches.
