Mid-Week Could Be A Wash Out
Some computer models are beginning to show Hurricane Ida hit Louisiana and the remnants move up the coast. When the remnants move up the coast moisture will be pulled in and expand the rain area. By Wednesday rain could begin to fall and it might continue to fall for several days. The 06z gfs shows an area of rain impacting the Mid-Atlantic on Wednesday then stalling out and continuing to produce heavy rain and strong winds Friday. The estimated rainfalls on the 06z gfs shows 8-10 inches in the middle Delmarva Peninsula and the Mid-Atlantic as a whole receiving anywhere from 1-10 inches in a widespread area. This could cause a serious flooding problem if this is the way the storm plays out. Along with the heavy rain winds of 40-60 mph could impact the coastal regions. Coastal flooding, rip currents, and beach erosion could be a major problem, too. Stay tuned for my blog as I get more information on the storm and as the week progresses.
