Tropical Storm IDA

Latest satellite imagery indicates IDA is nearly as well organized as it was prior to the first RECON flight several days ago.



And speaking of RECON they are tasked with a flight scheduled to depart in about 2 hours. If my memory is correct. Fix time is 10 AM CST or 16Z. for location: D. 17.2N 84.7W
Currently there is no assigned tasking for the NOAA Aircraft. But that may change with the mid morning Plan of the Day issuance. As it often does.
NOAA was checking one of their planes out yesterday. See NHC Recon page and NOAA HDOBs.

Current center, using the above sat shot is 17.7N/ 84.2W at 0831Z or 2:31 AM CST. That makes the center 0.5N and 0.5E of where the fix was to be located in 7 hours. I'm using the center of the top light grey cloud for reference.
Which is slightly wobbling around the CoC.
