Northeast winds for Labor Day Weekend
Ida really unloaded on the Northeast United States Wednesday night, some of the heaviest rainfall totals throughout Ida’s entire inland track took place between Philadelphia and Boston. Dozens died in flash flooding. A few locations saw as much as 10″ of rain, in a matter of hours. This illustrates the amazing deep layer of tropical moisture that surrounded Ida and allowed for the 3rd fastest rapid intensification over the past 50 years.
Ida about to bring Jacksonville a decent weekend, but first a few more storms
Ida is a long way from Jacksonville, moving through New England at the moment, yet a trail of tropical moisture will swing through the area on Thursday. This means we will have one more umbrella day (Thursday) before some significantly drier weather rolls into town.
