An absolutely devastating situation is evolving for portions of Central America with Hurricane Eta. That storm is expected to become a major hurricane before making landfall and then move very, very slowly. This could lead to rainfall amounts as high as 50 inches in some mountainous locations. This will likely evolve into an enormous humanitarian disaster. Please keep these folks close to your hearts.
There are indications that either Eta or another system will develop into the southern Gulf by this weekend. That could bring us rain by this time next week. There’s a ton of time to watch that and much will change with that forecast over the course of this week. Still, it’s worth noting because some models show a very intense hurricane impacting the Gulf by next weekend. I’ll keep an eye on it.
Today’s National Wx Hazards
A very quiet weather day.
Tomorrow’s National Wx Hazards
Two quiet weather days in a row!
8 – 14 Day Outlook
A changing pattern continues to evolve for the 9th through the 15th. Cooler in the west, warm in the east, but that warmth looks to be moving out as that colder air moves eastward.
We now have Hurricane Eta in the Caribbean. That storm is expected to impact Central America tomorrow as a major hurricane. Those folks are in for a very rough ride.
The first crew to occupy the International Space Station arrived there on November 2, 2000. Since then, 241 people from around the world have lived and worked on the space station, conducting numerous experiments and discovering things that have improved life here on Earth.
