Normally I would not continue to discuss a system once it has made landfall, especially a weak system or one that did not affect Florida. However, the remnants of IDA fueled a storm that produced Gale force winds and heavy rain from Virginia to New England, causing flooding and coastal damage across a wide area. While no longer a tropical system, and now losing strength as it moves out to sea, this system may have had more impact on the East Coast than it did on the Gulf Coast a week ago.

Beyond that, nothing is expected in the tropics for the next several days, and the season is officially over in two weeks so IDA may end up being this years last named Atlantic Storm, or I could end up eating these words when it is not. Locally, we did get some rain as IDA moved through the region, most of that rain was North of here, but we still got just enough to keep the fire danger at bay, at least for now. Until next time, take care and stay safe.
