All eyes on Ida....

Discussing Hurricane Ida and its impacts here in the Carolinas in today's video....

Hurricane Ida continues to head for a landfall on the Gulf coast late tonight. Out ahead of the system, clouds are spilling into our area today. It is will pleasant today, however, with highs close to 70.

The rain looks to really settle into our area tomorrow, with the heaviest rain likely occurring from late tomorrow through tomorrow night.

Forecasting the rain totals is very tricky. One of our computer models (the NAM) actually gives us no rain, while others (GFS and RPM) give us upwards of 4 inches. At this point, I certainly feel odds favor a soaking rain, and many Piedmont locations could pick up in excess of 2 inches, maybe more.

Flooding could be a problem in some spots if we do see the heavier rain amounts materialize.

It will become pretty breezy tomorrow night into Wednesday behind the system. However, once this system exits, I don't see another good rain chance for the rest of the week or weekend.
