Major Hurricane Ida

AF plane looks like it is having issues and returning

Oh man that's a bummer at this point. Also looks like the NOAA plane is finished after only two center fixes. That's strange as the storm isn't far at all from Lakeland so they should have plenty of fuel.

Could be equipment failure.

Going to go out on a limb and say Ida fights pockets of dry air that prevent it from achieving Cat 4 or 5 status. It's running out of time before it begins interacting with the continental airmass. I'm very interested to see if any buoys get close to the center tonight and see what the wave height and winds are. Would give us a clue as to the potential storm surge.

Which is odd because wasn't dry air supposed to be NIL? NHC was always talking about a very moist environment

NOAA plane is doing a planned spiral ascent for some sort of research purpose. Once that is complete they'll head back down to 700 millibars and continue the recon mission.

For posterity.

Seems like Ida might be one of those hurricanes whose wind field might expand more than winds increasing. Pressure been dropping all day with increasing wind field but strength of winds been slower to rise. 

I would expect a rather rapid rise in winds at some point this evening as pressures keep declining. We've seen that occur with multiple hurricanes in the past where it takes several hours for the winds to respond upward. It'll probably happen rather quickly too when it finally does. The expanding wind field is likely playing a part in delaying the uptick in wind speeds too.

Judging by satellite. The fact it's been wobbling so today.

I honestly would not be shocked if Ida makes landfall west of Mobile Bay right into lower MS.

Especially if it under goes more strengthening since the sun has gone down.

That’s doubtful.

But probable

Just like everyone saying it's heading to New Orleans.

Models can only do so much. Especially during the fact that you have a TC strengthening. 

I can tell you that the current center fix with a strengthening center is already too far east and curving to make landfall in New Orleans.

It's going to be east.
