Ida makes landfall, bringing rain

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -  Tropical Storm IDA made landfall near Mobile Bay Tuesday morning.

Its westward position will mean wind speed should stay below Tropical Storm Force. We are going to be on the wet side of the storm as it transitions to becoming Extratropical.

Rain estimates remain 2" to 4". Thunderstorms are possible this afternoon.

Skies will slowly clear from NW to SE on Wednesday with a few showers. Drier air ends the week with near average temperatures. This weekend expect a warming trend as an upper level ridge develops.

The A. P. reports that Ida knocked out power on Dauphin Island, Alabama and forced the closure of the road to the west end of the island.

But when island residents got out at Tuesday morning, they were pleased with how their homes came through the storm. Joy Cook said the barrier island dodged a bullet.

Another resident, Jimmy Wentworth, said houses on the east end of the island only had minimal wind damage.

Ida flooded the road on the west end of the island, where many of the residents evacuated. There was ankle-deep water on many parts of the road Tuesday morning.
