Re: Ida Again Tropical Storm Moving Toward Gulf

What remains of Ida is the small area of convection that now exists near the center and while it may be a hurricane briefly prior to landfall, the bulk of Ida is onshore as shear took its toll earlier today with the lone exception of that convective burst. Ida's center may in fact be tropical, but Ida's appearance on satellite is that of a subtropical cyclone as the non-tropical low to its west, incoming shortwave will begin to merge once Ida is onshore. I haven't looked at the 12Z model run but there was earlier discussion of a low "bombing" out off the coast of GA/SC as the next shortwave dives into the upper level trough just off the SE coast as flow aloft becomes NW.
