As of Sunday morning Tropical Storm ETA is passing over Cuba with 60mph sustained winds and is set to head into The Gulf later today or tonight.

It’s critical to note that until ETA enters The Gulf that forecast confidence is low; the forecast track and intensity will change over the coming days.

Computer-model forecasts are hinting that Eta will curve east late next week, toward the Florida Peninsula. Where it goes once it gets there is still up for debate. There will be lots of factors at play that will steer this storm one way or another. Just like this entire 2020 hurricane season, it’s best to be prepared for anything.

We’ll have more updates through the weekend and as we start the week, so stay tuned.
