CFH Fax Image of Nor'Ida, 11/12

This fax sent by CFH, Canadian Forces METOC Centre, Halifax, NS is a 24-hour prognostic chart showing Nor'Ida taking shape in the Mid-Atlantic.

Nor'Ida is the name that people have started giving the combination of the remnants of Hurricane Ida and a cold front. This grew into a Perfect Storm type of nor'easter, which went on to cause considerable damage and some loss of life in VA, NC, and other states.

Frequency was 13508.0 USB, at 12/1716 UTC.

US state lines are no longer visible on this reduced image, but the forecast position of the low is just off North Carolina.
