Ida back down to tropical storm status

Ida just can't decide what she wants to look like when she comes ashore Tuesday morning on the U.S. Gulf Coast.

Just a few hours after reclaiming her status as a hurricane, Ida has again been downgraded to tropical storm status, according to the National Weather Service.

Not coincidentally, a hurricane warning earlier in place for a stretch of coastline from Florida to Mississippi has been replaced by a less severe tropical storm warning. In all, a tropical storm warning remains in place from Grand Isle, La., east to Aucilla River, Fla.

Forecasters expect Idawill not turn again into a hurricane before making landfall.
