The remnents of Ida merged with the western Caribbean upper low producing heavy rainfall and strong winds, especially over Alabama...where the low level center is now located. In the next 1-2 days this system is expected to exit the mid-Atlantic coast, where further intensification is possible. However, this intensification is expected to be baroclinic, and re-development of a tropical cyclone is not expected. Nevertheless, hurricane-like conditions are possible over the western Atlantic in association with this system. Additionally, large swell is possible along the US east coast.
A second significant baroclinic low is located about 1000 km north of Puerto Rico. While tropical transition is not likely, this system combined with the low leaving the mid Atlantic states could lead to a quite stormy west Atlantic later this week.
