Hurricane Ida now a category 2, will likely gain considerably more strength before it makes landfall tomorrow evening. We are looking at the potential for it to make landfall as a category 4, which will be the strongest Hurricane to make landfall this season. We are already seeing some showers and storms coming off of this large storm, and as it breaks apart, it’s remnants are likely to bring heavy rain and storms to the CSRA, starting Tuesday night, and getting worse through Wednesday.
Tropical Depression 10, will thankfully keep out into the Atlantic, and we wont see any effects from it. It will likely become Tropical Storm Julian, but will quickly return to a depression as it moves into cooler waters.
Tropical Depression 11 has now also formed, and much like Depression 10, it should stay out to sea. We will continue to monitor this storm, which could become either Julian or Kate.
