Pinpointing the tropics

We continue to watch Tropical Depression Eta.

Eta, near Belize as of Friday morning, has maximum sustained winds of 35 mph and is moving north at 8 mph.

Eta will eventually move into the warm waters just south of Cuba as a tropical storm.

The new computer models are in agreement with the official track, showing that Eta will brush South Florida and move into the Gulf of Mexico next week.

It remains to be seen what kind of impacts will be felt in Central Florida.
