Re: Ida regaining Tropical Storm status?

Ida is approaching the water again, and it's maintained itself which will likely allow for some restrengthening once back in the Caribbean. It was helped by staying further east and more north than was expected, likely enhanced by it becoming a hurricane before landfall.

It's likely that the forecast track will drift a little east of what it is now. The question then is how much will it convert to Extra/sub tropical when it's in the Gulf. I put more about that in the lounge. In short those along west Florida will want to keep a close watch on what happens with Ida.
