Ida in the tropics...Fantastic weather here...

>> Thursday, November 05, 2009

I take a detailed look at Ida this morning, plus what lies ahead in the weather for the Carolinas.

We will see plentiful sunshine today and right on through the weekend as well. Highs today will be in the mid 60s for most, and it will be a bit breezy this afternoon. Tomorrow and Saturday will feature low to mid 60s, then lower 70s Sunday.

Nights will remain chilly with lows in the 30s through the weekend. It looks cold enough for at least some frost tonight and again tomorrow night.

Our next chance of rain will come Tuesday into Wednesday next week as a cold front picks up whatever becomes of Ida and pulls moisture up our way.

Speaking of Ida, the system became a hurricane this morning and is making landfall in Central America today. The system will likely get out over the very warm western Caribbean Sea waters by this weekend, and there is a decent chance this could re-strengthen into a formidable tropical system.

Whatever becomes of Ida will likely eventually make landfall on the Gulf coast next week, but the system would likely weaken before that eventual landfall due to cooler Gulf of Mexico water temps.
