Computer Model Ensemble Forecasts.









Hurricane Ida strengthened from a Tropical Depression yesterday to a Category 1 Hurricane this morning. This morning's model forecast tracks indicate that she will slam into southern Louisiana between Sunday night and Monday morning. As with most hurricanes, predicting the exact location of her eventual landfall is still in doubt this far out in time.

HMON Forecast.


This morning's computer model forecast runs of the HWRF and HMON models indicate that Ida will be a Major Hurricane (Cat 3-4) just before landfall sometime Sunday evening into Monday morning. This may change before actual landfall. There is a lot of talk in the weather world of Ida making landfall even stronger. 

ECMWF Wave Height Forecast.


Hurricane Ida has the potential to generate wave heights just offshore of southern Lousiana upwards of 73 feet before making landfall. This is according to this morning's ECMWF model forecast. If she comes ashore stronger than currently forecast these waves could be even higher.

Computer Model Rainfall Forecasts.




Hurricane Ida has the potential to cause Lousiana a lot of heartache and problems. The area between Morgan City and New Orleans looks to be ground zero for landfall at this time. Although this will likely change somewhat so keep abreast of all National Weather Service forecasts, updates, watches, and warnings.
