Yep, not much to turn it one way or the other or move it in any real direction so it looks to just meander / wobble around next couple days until a passing trough tries to pick it up and move it out.

Mon 9/21/2015 5pmEST update: Ida was looking much better earlier but now mid level winds in the atmosphere have separated/sheared the lower and mid level sections of the storm (tropical systems need to be vertically aligned to strengthen) resulting in the storms becoming separated from the lower center 'swirl' of the Tropical Storm. Winds estimated to be around 50mph which the NHC says is being generous so will likely see this wind speed drop overnight. Ida likely to weaken over the next 2-3 days and could even fall apart. The storm does have the potential to restrengthen/redevelop in 4 to 5 days though.

Ida is moving generally to the NNW at around 7mph but steering air currents will leave Ida to meander / wobble around the next few days and may even drift back down to the SE until a trough tries to pull what remains of Ida up and out to the NE towards the weekend. Might get a full loop out of Ida before it says goodbye! Pressure 1003mb.

Tue 9/22/2015 11pmEST update: Winds 40mph, moving ESE (Yes! It went backwards!) at around 2mph, pressure 1005mb.

Expected to turn more back to the N / NW around Thursday. Some strengthening is possible this week.

Ida may try to hang out in the Atlantic for awhile afterall...

Thurs 9/24/2015 - 11amEST update: Ida has been downgraded to a Tropical Depression. Slowly moving to the NNE. Expected to slowly turn back to the N, NW, then W under the influence of a building ridge into the region. No threat to land, just moving about in the north central Atlantic.

Sat 9-26-2015 - 5pmEST update: Ida still hanging onto Tropical Depression status with winds of only around 35mph, moving NW at 8mph, pressure 1006mb. Expected to generally head towards the W or even SW over the next few days. Some models have it dissipate completely and some models give it a little bit of life in a few days but overall should be a weak system either way.
