According to WIKI, Hurricane Ida is the ninth tropical storm and third hurricane of the 2009 Atlantic hurricane season. Ida rapidly strengthened from when it formed to its landfall. Hurricane Ida developed shortly after noon (EDT) on November 4 as a tropical depression.
Now, Ida is heading to Gulf coast!! Mobile is one of the cities in Ida’s storm predicted path. I don’t think it’s as serious as it could have been due to the water in the Gulf Mexico is getting cooler.
As Hurricane Ida approaches the region late Monday night and into Tuesday,winds will begin to increase.
We will also have the potential for low end tropical storm force winds in portions of southeastern Alabama and southwestern Georgia.
The National Hurricane Center’s forecast on late Sunday afternoon called for Ida’s track to take a north bend south of Mobile Bay early Tuesday for a possible landfall near Pensacola late morning to around midday on Tuesday.
