Tropical Storm IDA has now upgraded into a category 1 hurricane. Max winds are now at 75 mph with gradual increasing over the next few days. IDA could become a category 3 Sunday morning, and make landfall as a major hurricane Sunday night/ Monday morning along the Louisiana coast. There is potential for it to become a category 4 at the rate it is strengthening.

Two more systems could increase in strength over the next few days, but as of now, no threat to us. One appears to be stagnant off of Bermuda, with no real increase in strength. However the second, between the Cabo Verde Islands and the Lesser Antilles, could become the next tropical depression over the weekend.
