Tropical Storm Ida forms in the Atlantic
An area of low pressure we have been watching over the past couple of days has formed into Tropical Storm Ida this Saturday morning. She has sustained winds of 40mph and is moving to the northwest at 10mph.
Like all other storms this season, she is going to be affected by wind shear and dry air keeping her at tropical storm strength over the next 5 days. She is very far away from the Grand Strand and is likely not going to have any effects on the area.
Over the next few days she is forecast to move to the northwest and then curve out further into the Atlantic not posing any threat to the US coastline or any other landmass. We’ll continue to monitor Tropical Storm Ida as she continues to churn in the open waters of the Atlantic but for right now there is no need to worry.
