Tropical Storm Eta is stalled out near the Yucatan Channel but is expected to begin to move northward.  At 4 am, Eta was located near 22.9 North, 85.5 West, about 80 miles north-northwest of the western tip of Cuba.  Maixmum sustained winds were 50 miles per hour.  Unfortunately, additional rainfall from Eta is likely in western Cuba and South Florida for the next day or so.  Eta is forecast to strengthen slightly, but its future track is more uncertain than usual.  Landfall is likely along the northern Gulf Coast late this weekend.

The 2020 Atlantic hurricane season just won’t quit.  We now have Subtropical Storm Theta in the north-central Atlantic.  At 4 am, Theta was located near 28.8 North, 38.5 West, about 960 miles southwest of the Azores.  Maximum sustained winds were 50 miles per hour, and Theta was moving east at 12 miles per hour.  And we also have a wave in the eastern Caribbean that has a medium chance of development as it moves westward during the next 5 days.
