PASSING CLOUDS: For the rest today and tomorrow, the sky will feature a mix sun and clouds at times, but still expect plenty of sunshine that will allow afternoon highs in the lows 70s today with mid 70s tomorrow.

KEEPING AN EYE ON ETA: Latest update on Eta from NHC: The center of Tropical Depression Eta was located near latitude 15.1 North, longitude 87.8 West. The depression is moving toward the northwest near 9 mph, and this general motion is expected to continue today. A turn toward the north, and then the northeast is forecast to occur tonight and Friday. On the forecast track, the center of Eta is expected to move across northwestern Honduras through this afternoon, and emerge over the Gulf of Honduras by tonight. Eta is forecast to approach the Cayman Islands and western or central Cuba this weekend.

Maximum sustained winds are near 30 mph with higher gusts. Little change in strength is likely through tonight. After that, Eta is forecast to intensify over the northwestern Caribbean Sea. The estimated minimum central pressure is 1005 mb (29.68 inches).

Once the system moves back into the Caribbean, it is expected to regenerate and gain strength, and heads towards and over Cuba, and to a point near Key West Monday night. From there, model guidance suggests Eta will move into Gulf of Mexico by the middle part of next week and where it winds up from there, no one knows right now. We will be keeping a close eye on the system.
