In the tropics, Eta is now a hurricane as it approaches the coast of Central America.  At 5 am, Hurricane Eta was about 155 miles east of the border between Nicaragua and Honduras.  Maximum sustained winds were 75 miles per hour, and Eta was moving west at 12 miles per hour.  A hurricane warning is in effect for portions of the coast of Nicaragua, and there’s a hurricane watch and tropical storm warning for parts of coastal Honduras.  Life-threatening flash flooding, as well as storm surge and damaging winds, are expected when Eta makes landfall late on Tuesday or early Wednesday.

What eventually happens to Eta or its remnants is highly uncertain.  Computer model runs indicate the system could be lifted northward early next week, possibly into the southeastern Gulf of Mexico.  We’ll watch this very closely.  Remember, hurricane season lasts (officially) through November 30.
