Tropical Storm Idalia drifts towards the Gulf as she gets stronger: Hurricane is expected to threaten Florida Wednesday
NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - Today will be the final days for several days to come as rain chances move in and soon to be hurricane Idalia moves into the southern Gulf tomorrow. Our rain chances will be fueled by the cold front lingering over our region, not this system, as it is forecast to stay to our east as it is pulled northeastward by an upper-level low over the Great Lakes region. The timing looks like a cat 2 or higher hitting from Tampa to the big bend of Florida Wednesday morning.
Rain chances will increase, especially Monday and Tuesday. A few strong-to-severe storms are possible, with gusty winds and small hail being the main threats.
