This is one of the strangest storm tracks I’ve seen. Last week Tropical Storm Eta went from 40 mph to 150 mph in 36 hours. It hit Nicaragua as a Cat 4. After snaking through Honduras and back east to Cuba, it is now making a turn again to pass through the Florida Keys.
Since Eta will pass south of the Florida mainland, it has a better chance to become a Hurricane, and warnings have been issued for the Keys. This new path takes it father out into the Gulf of Mexico, before slowing turning north and lingering for the week. This will have two opportunities to send heavy rain and flooding our way.

National Hurricane Center Forecast
A wide impact zone includes the entire east coast of Florida. This is because of the broader easterly wind in place and enhanced by being pulled in to Eta.
A Storm Surge Warning is in effect for... * Florida Keys from Ocean Reef to the Dry Tortugas, including Florida Bay A Storm Surge Watch is in effect for... * Florida coast from Golden Beach to Bonita Beach, including Biscayne Bay
Interactive Forecast Widget
Eta is at the bottom of the screen. Two times it will send heavy rain north our way.
- Wednesday rain teams up with a cold front, but Eta remains in the Gulf.
- Saturday/Sunday the remains of Eta get pulled into the next front.
Rainfall Forecast Through Thursday
This changed a little bit. The GFS has lowered the rain with a slight delay of the arrival and shift of the heaviest precipitation south and east. The ECMWF Model has been holding more steady.
Again, more rain is likely next week as well.
