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 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.
