Weekend Rain

Off the coast will be a circulation along the stalled boundary. We need to watch this for location and influence on bringing rain/storms inland.

Along the coast, it will keep an onshore wind and rip currents at the beaches.

Tropical Outlook

Tropical Storm Ida now has winds of 45 mph.  The track takes it into the central Gulf of Mexico over very warm water.  It will most likely develop into a major hurricane before making landfall near New Orleans Sunday or early Monday.

Movement: NW at 15 mph

Pressure: 1001 mb/ 29.56″

 

Forecast Track/Cone

The National Hurricane Center Track shows the path of landfall on the coast of Louisiana as a Category 3 Major Hurricane.  The timing shows Sunday, but there is still some wiggle room among models.

I will have a more detailed update on the storm specifics later this morning.
