Hurricane Ida on Track for Pensacola-Mobile

Ida became a Category 1 hurricane overnight, moved a little closer to the Yucatan peninsula, and is expected to strengthen to a Cat 2 before entering the Gulf of Mexico. She is expected to make landfall somewhere along the "East-Central Gulf Coast in 48 to 72 hours." At 7:50 am this morning, Weather Channel hurricane guru Steve Lyons was predicting a "Pensacola-Mobile" landfall Tuesday night or early Wednesday morning.

One good thing: the storm is smaller than your average bear. Hurricane force winds have a radius of only 15 miles from the center. Another good thing: The storm is expected to begin weakening Monday evening, well before landfall.
