Hurricane Ida has weakened into a tropical depression in the 24 hours since making landfall. While the violent winds with this storm are mainly over, the heavy rain is not. The storm is expected to lift northeast over the next two days and draw heavy rain into the Mid Atlantic.

The track of the center of the storm looks to pass into Southern Pennsylvania through New Jersey and Long Island. The heaviest track of rainfall along this course favors those areas, with 6-8" of rainfall possible.

As of Monday evening, the track of the storm should keep Central New York out of the heavy rain bands. The northern fringe of the storm looks to make it as far north as areas south of the Mohawk Valley. Should the storm shift south, Wednesday turns out to be a completely dry day, with faded sunshine from high clouds. Should the storm shift north more of Central New York sees rain.

Ida heads out to sea on Thursday, pulling much cooler weather in from the northwest. A taste of early fall is expected on Thursday and Friday, with highs in the low 70s and overnight lows in the 40s.
