08/30 Ryan’s “Ida’s Last Gasp” Monday Night Forecast
Ida is rapidly deteriorating, but it looks like it's making one last gasp effort to cause problems along the Coast.
It has been a rough 36 hours for SE Louisiana and South MS, but things will improve rapidly after tonight and tomorrow’s last gasp showers. We’re still going to see at least a few showers and thunderstorms throughout the evening and into the early morning, but skies clear considerably after that. Flooding issues will linger for a few more days though.
We’re under an Areal Flood Warning (covers a broad area unlike Flash Flooding) until late tomorrow morning, and local rivers will remain high through the middle of the week.
If you live in these areas, you’ll likely be seeing issues through Thursday morning. Thankfully though the rain will stop soon. Rain chances will linger in the 30% range through tomorrow morning, fall to 20% for Wednesday, and then drop off completely for the rest of the week. That means we’re getting a well-deserved sunny break from any active weather to aid in recovery/repair efforts. Cloud cover remains minimal through the weekend, and rain chances don’t return until Labor Day.
