August 31 Some Storms Today Then Ida Brings Flooding And Severe Weather Wednesday

Forecast
Tropics

Tuesday August 31 2021

The remains of Ida are set to arrive Wednesday morning with rain. The heavy rain, likely flooding, and potential severe storms with tornados will arrive by evening and overnight. 

Before all of that, we have some showers and thunderstorms today to plot out.  After all of that, much cooler and more pleasant temperatures will settle in for the holiday weekend. 

Morning Surface Weather

The core remnant Low of ‘Ida’ is not longer tropical, but we will still refer to the name. It is located in northern Mississippi.  That core is forecast to move through central Maryland Wednesday night.

The cold front locally will be responsible for showers and storms today.

Places in the mid 80s or higher are more likely to get severe storms from Ida.

This as been adjusted to begin at 8 AM

The heaviest rain will arrive later in the day and overnight. 

 

ECMWF Storm Animation:

Here we see the rain from Ida arriving on Wednesday, well ahead of the center passing through Maryland Thursday morning. 

The heaviest rain is forecast to reach into central PA, but I have verification of recent storms to the south. I think we still need to watch that core rain field.
