Wrong position of Ida

Windy is not showing correct position or wind speeds for Ida.
Windy shows weather models forecasts. So it is not real-time positioning of the Hurricane. If you want to get it precisely, please refer to the Radar and / or the Satellite infra+ layers.
Concerning the wind speeds, it is well known that global or regional models are not good at predicting the 1-minute sustained winds which are considered in Saffir-Simpson scale used for tropical phenomena. This is the reason why the NHC take into account flight recon, Dvorak analyse and specialised weather models. So even if Windy shows a good estimation of the hurricane path, you must rely on NHC advisories in any case.

Ida position on model forecasts (middle and right side screenshots), here NAM (computed by NOAA, not by Windy), is pretty close to real time observations (left side screenshot)
