Eta is the 48th hurricane to form in the month of November since 1851.
So what’s Eta’s plan after Central America? Well, most modeling has Eta push back out into the Caribbean this weekend and restrengthen into a tropical storm.
We could then see Eta push east and stall near Cuba due to blocking high pressure early next week. From there, we could either see Eta push back west, pull into the Gulf, approach South Florida, or even push up along the US East Coast.
Lots at play, and timing is everything here.
All in all, the entire Gulf Coast should watch Eta closely. Especially Florida.
