Ida is now a tropical depression, but it continues to bring heavy rain to portions of the South. At 5 am, Tuesday, Tropical Depression Ida was located about 185 miles southwest of Nashville, Tennessee.  Maximum sustained winds were 30 miles per hour, and Ida was moving northeast at 12 miles per hour.

Tropical Storm Kate formed on Monday from what had been Tropical Depression # 10.  At  5 am Tuesday, TS Kate was located near 23.0 North, 50.9 West, about 810 miles east-northeast of the Leeward Islands.  Maximum sustained winds were 40 miles per hour, and Kate was moving north at 5 miles per hour.  Kate is not well organized and is expected to remain in the open waters of the Atlantic.

Elsewhere, a strong wave just off the African coast has a high chance of becoming a depression during the next day or so.. And a broad area of low pressure is expected to develop in the southern Caribbean later this week.  This feature has a low chance of becoming a depression during the next five days as it approaches the coast of Central America.
