HURRICANE IDA: Landfall near Port Fourchon, LA, around 1 p.m. Sunday. Category 4 hurricane with 150 mph winds at landfall.

Say goodbye to the intense heat and humidity. A cold front is headed our way Monday. We'll see an increase in clouds tonight with scattered showers and storms developing during the afternoon. Highs will top out near 86 degrees.

The front will help push the remnant moisture from Ida more to the south and east of the Tri-State Tuesday. However, we are still going to get rain from this system. Our two-day rainfall totals will likely fall between 1 and 2 inches.

The good news is that after the front passes through, our air will dry out and cool off considerably. Highs will fall into the 70s Tuesday and Wednesday. We'll get a stretch of days with no rain and much lower humidity as temperatures climb back to near normal (84 degrees) later in the week. Enjoy!
