Most forecast models are pretty much in similarity for the next 24 hours. After this the models go crazy and there is a wide range of possibilities for the storm. For the strength some models have Hurricane Ida being a tropical storm at landfall while another model has it making landfall as a Category 3 hurricane and staying at Category 1 strength if it goes on a track that takes it up to Virginia. Also there is a wide range of tracks for the storm. The storm curving back out in the Gulf is a possibility, the storm going into and across Florida is another possibility, the storm going up to the Mid-Atlantic is also a possibility, and the storm going up towards Canada is another track possibility. The worst case scenario though for the Delmarva area is it going up to just off the Mid-Atlantic. This could give the beaches major beach erosion, coastal flooding, and very high surf. Also several inches of rain with 60-80 mph gust is possible. If this scenario works out the Appalachians will also be slammed with 1-2 feet of heavy wet snow. We will just have to pay close attention right now to this dangerous storm.
