Hurricane Ingrid is still holding on

Posted: Updated:

Several investigations by the Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunters have proved that Ingrid is barely at hurricane strength, but still possesses the qualifying wind speeds. Further intensification seems to be possible in the hours to come, however the storm will likely stay a category one by landfall. Ingrid is still expected to turn toward the west thus making landfall in Mexico. This is due to the upper level ridge of high pressure over the southern United States steering the storm toward the west. It is not a threat to Louisiana at the moment and will likely not affect us in the days to come. At the moment, not coastal zones of the Unites States are threatened by this storm. Storm Team 5 is keeping watch over the system should anything change.

The remnants of Hubert are noticeable in the far Atlantic, and reorganization is very likely in the hours to come. However, even if this system does redevelop, it is not likely this storm will affect us either.
