(KSLA) - Hurricane Ida made landfall near Port Fourchon as a category 4 storm at 11:55am Sunday with max winds at 150mph!

Catastrophic damage has occurred in southeast Louisiana. Latest tracks shows Ida weakening to a cat 1 hurricane as it moves into to Mississippi overnight tonight. Through the morning and afternoon, Ida will move near the MS river but the latest track keeps Ida even further east to the ArkLaTex. Little to no impact from Ida is expected here locally. A few outer rainbands are possible Monday, but winds should remain under 20mph for the majority of the area.

Overnight: We’ll remain quiet in most areas, with just a slight chance for a few showers.

Monday: As you wake up, morning temperatures are in the 70s once again and you may notice a few extra clouds. By the afternoon, look for a mix of clouds and sunshine with only a handful of showers expected. We’ll start off the week on a hot note with temperatures in the low 90s.

Tuesday: Looks even hotter and drier. I do expect a couple small showers in some areas, but most of us will likely be sunny and dry. Highs Tuesday will be in the lower to mid 90s.

The middle through the rest of the work week shows temperatures holding on the mid 90s for highs in the afternoon and rain chances slim to none as we close out the work week!

Have a great week ahead!
