Source of info[edit]

The HPC advisories on Ida talk about the formation of this new low, and could be used as an additional source of information. Thegreatdr (talk) 09:47, 8 March 2010 (UTC)


I know this suggestion is coming a bit late, but how about calling the article "Nor'Ida" since that's what I call it if I talk about the storm with friends. It was the Nor'Ida, not the "November 2009 mid-atlantic nor'easter." I've already created a "Nor'Ida" page as a redirect to the current article, but I feel like I might as well at least ask the question - should it be the other way around?

One could argue that fairly safely. It seems like I hear it referred to as the media-coined Nor'Ida most frequently. No entity names extratropical cyclones in North America. Any other thoughts? Thegreatdr (talk) 12:14, 25 July 2012 (UTC)

Merge with Hurricane Ida(2009)[edit]

This storm is basically the extra tropical version of Ida,since it was formed from the remnants of Ida.So shouldn't it be merged with Hurricane Ida into one single Article?(I would call the new article Hurricane/Nor'easter Ida) — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:14, 24 July 2012 (UTC)

It's technically a separate system. According to the National Hurricane Center, Ida dissipated not long after moving ashore in the Gulf Coast and a new low formed to the north. This new low became the nor'easter and is a separate entity from Hurricane Ida. Cyclonebiskit (talk) 19:37, 24 July 2012 (UTC)
While it did form from Ida's mid-level circulation, this was a separate surface low. We should likely treat it similarly to how NHC treated Helene and Karl of 1998 for consistency's sake, i.e. two systems even though they shared the same mid-level circulation.

No, not everything needs to be merged. YE Pacific Hurricane 17:24, 27 July 2012 (UTC)
Why can't they? :P Seriously though, I think whatever is decided here should also be applied to Hurricane Juan (1985), a storm that also had a significant tropical history and a significant related extratropical history (incidentally also causing damage in Virginia). This article mostly seems long because of the images, fwiw. --♫ Hurricanehink (talk) 19:01, 27 July 2012 (UTC)
This page seems to be almost completely copied from a section of Hurricane Ida (2009), so I still vote for merge (talk) 19:54, 19 October 2012 (UTC)
