BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Get ready for Iota. The 30th named storm of the 2020 Atlantic Hurricane Season is likely to form over the weekend, according to the Friday morning update from the National Hurricane Center. What happens after formation remains unclear. While a path for Central America seems likely, those who remember Eta, from just Monday, wonder whether the storm will follow in her footsteps and make a northeast turn to Florida.
We remind our readers: the oval you see in an extended “outlook” forecast represents the area where a storm may form, not the path a storm may take. Tracking maps are only initiated after a storm develops.
From the National Hurricane Center:
The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on Tropical Storm Eta, located near the coast of the southeast U.S., and on Tropical Storm Theta, located over the eastern Atlantic. 1. A tropical wave located over the central Caribbean Sea continues to produce a large area of showers and thunderstorms. This system has become a little better organized during the past several hours. Additional development is expected, and a tropical depression will likely form within the next day or two as it moves slowly westward over the central and western Caribbean Sea. Interests in Honduras and Nicaragua should closely monitor the progress of this system. Regardless of development, this disturbance is expected to bring heavy rainfall along with possible flash flooding to portions of Hispaniola over the next day or so.
