I know. I’m so exhausted. I have hurricane fatigue.ETA is now a major hurricane and there will be lots of rain associated for Nicuagua and Honduras (lots of Central America actually!)
This is pretty awful. NHC did not upgrade to a cat 5 though they could have. Winds currently are 145MPH This storm is very slow moving and will be catastrophic.
It WILL make its way back over hot water and this is where we'll know what it does. Some models are suggesting a possible Gulf hit. Other models are suggesting a possible Florida hit. One last night showed a straight up TX hit (its an outlier probably will not happen) No matter what it does, that Sunday position is going to be playing a huge part. @whitewave you guys have had enough but here's another one to watch.
Thankfully you'll be on the west side of this one, so, maybe rain for you ...lets hope its only a few sprinkles. Aside from the Panhandle, FL has been pretty lucky this year so now we're getting a double hit as long as the storm stays a TS and continues to move as fast as it is now, awesome. fine. There's going to be some spots still left to watch but don't think they'll go for land (at least we hope not!) This season has been extra, along with everything else 2020
Stay safe @PreRaphaelite I know too well the terrible feeling of having to evacuate and not knowing what you might find when you come back...sending many good vibes and well wishes you and your loved ones way.Given its projected track, I will be preparing on Monday to leave the area. If I waited until Wednesday, the path of egress will be clogged.
Well, thats not good news! Glad you're doing ok down there. I'm on the east coast. I thought it was more on the west coast but I can see that
Yeah well...2020 We're still under watches here and probably will for the rest of the day. parts of the keys had a "a dry eye" with most of the convection was to the north and east. they're getting more rain now though! Homestead up got crapped on basically. The entire east coast is now getting those wrap around bands with more of it coming the rest of the day.Well, thats not good news!

its big enough to cover the state . I wish it would do its thing and move on through. I guess we'll just have to wait this one out!
