IDA,WHICH WAS PREVIOUSLY DOMINATING BY CAT 2 FORMAT IS NOW A CAT-1 HURRICANE.
AS THE CURRENT MODELS ARE SHOWING, IDA HAS LOST ITS CENTER OF AXIS THAT IS THE "EYE"
This is a sign of losing its organized and symmetric structure. The winds of ida are now round 80mph with the central pressure of 993mb.
Its current location is
NHC has issued hurricane watch for most of the southern coasts from
PASCAGOULA MISSISSIPPI EASTWARD TO INDIAN PASS FLORIDA.
Ida would surely rise the water level of the sea near its landfall by 4-6 above the ground level...
already it is struggling with a lot of dry air present around it. After the landfall, a close upper level trough <low pressure> will damp cold air in it and the hurricane will disintegrate...
The moisture from Ida would be present in the landfall areas after it disappears as it had happened in the case of hurricane Fred.
Ida's journey has been exciting!!
