T.S. Ida Threatens Pensacola

Believe it. A named tropical storm -- Ida -- has been born off the Yucatan Peninsula and current forecasts have it becoming a hurricane later tonight, then entering the Gulf of Mexico and heading north. It is expected to make landfall somewhere along the central Gulf Coast on Tuesday.

As of early Saturday evening, Pensacola is the bulls-eye. That's the bad news.

The good news is the storm may encounter a "mid- to upper-level trough" of cold air that could weaken it.
