Eta has been very unpredictable but it looks as though we might feel some effects of the Tropical Storm.
According to ABC Action News, a tropical storm watch has been issued for Florida’s west coast from Englewood northward to Suwannee River. This spans the entire Tampa Bay area, except for Polk county. We will probably feel the 45 to 55 mph winds and see rain from Eta within 48 hours.
The NHC says Eta is expected to restrengthen during Tuesday and Wednesday, then the storm is forecast to weaken on Thursday.
A Tropical Storm WATCH has now been issued for the area. This means Tropical Storm conditions (In this case, winds of 45 to 55 mph) are possible within 48 hours. The track, at this point, is still well offshore, but either way, we're on the East side which is stronger. pic.twitter.com/o1pAGmWaDy— Denis Phillips (@DenisPhillips28) November 10, 2020
Here's a close up view of the official NHC track. Notice, the heaviest winds still expected to be offshore, but remember, the East side will be squally, so if this in fact happens, Thursday will be a pretty squally day along the coast. LESS as we go inland. Stay tuned. Rule #7 pic.twitter.com/r3TkirUFAl— Denis Phillips (@DenisPhillips28) November 10, 2020
