Tropical Storm Ida strengthening, expected to become a major hurricane

Tropical Storm Ida now has winds sustained at 60 mph and is on track to rapidly intensify into a major hurricane this weekend in the Gulf of Mexico. Ida is bringing heavy rain, strong winds, and storm surge to Cuba today. 

Steered by high pressure, Ida will target Louisiana bringing 8 to 12 inches of rain along the central Gulf Coast with isolated spots receiving up to 15 inches. Hurricane and tropical storm watches have been posted for the central Gulf Coast. 

Ida will have a favorable environment for rapid intensification into the weekend due to warm sea surface temperatures.

SWFL is outside of the forecast cone but the region will still experience some impacts. The storm will increase the swell for our area and breezy conditions will lead to choppy seas through the weekend. A few tropical downpours may track close to Florida’s Gulf Coast as well. 

The National Hurricane Center is also highlighting two areas of interest in the Atlantic. The tropical wave approaching the Lesser Antilles will likely develop into a tropical depression. Neither area poses a threat to the U.S. at this time.
