According to the National Journal, GOP planners could extend the Republican National Convention until Friday:

Republicans are leaving open the possibility of extending their Tampa convention by a day, a senior Republican official told National Journal.

With Isaac expected to strengthen to a Category 2 hurricane and hit the Gulf Coast between Louisiana and Florida at midweek, Republicans are looking for flexibility in their schedule.

Convention officials still expect to begin the convention on Tuesday.

The convention currently is scheduled to end Thursday, but major disruptions in Tampa or along the Gulf Coast could prompt officials to extend it a day.

Sit tight for updates.

UPDATE - It appears the RNC convention won't extend through Friday:
