Nat'l Hurricane Center issues Tropical Storm Ida update

Tropical Storm Ida continues to slow down in the central Atlantic Ocean and is poorly organized. Maximum sustained winds are near 40 during an hour with higher gusts.

Ida is forecast to change little in intensity through Thursday night, the hurricane center said.  Ida is centered about 915 miles (1,470 kilometers) east-northeast of the northern Leeward Islands and is moving north-northwest near 5 mph (7 kph).

According to the National Hurricane Center in Miami, there would be little or no significant changes in the storm's movements over the next 48 hours. An erratic wobble takes Ida back and forth the next several days. The storm will be moving through a moderate to strong wind shear in that time.

Brennan said the system is forecast to move inland in a couple of days, and development before then is expected to be limited.

The first official autumn day comes this week, and along with the arrival of the season, the Atlantic hurricane season is also said to push through until the end of November.

 

The hurricane center's five-day tropical outlook shows an area in the southern Gulf of Mexico that will be watched for development.
