If you have plans to visit Walt Disney World late Sunday into early next week, you’ll want to keep a close eye on the weather as Florida is in the cone of the current Tropical Storm Eta.
As shared by the OrlandoSentinel: Eta redeveloped into a tropical storm on Saturday morning, prompting the National Hurricane Center to issue new watches and warnings across the Florida peninsula. Tropical Storm Eta is on track to impact Florida by way of heavy rainfall, storm surge, high winds and dangerous rip currents over the course of the next few days.
Eta will continue to gain strength as it moves closer to Cuba and the Cayman Islands, both of which remain under a tropical storm warning. The northwestern Bahamas are also under a tropical storm warning, upgraded by the Bahamian government from a storm watch early Saturday.

Fox 35 meteorologist Allison Gargaro said Tropical Storm Eta may impact parts of east Central Florida with high winds and torrential rainfall. ″Winds could be in excess of 50 mph as well as [the] potential for torrential rain,” Gargaro said. “There’s going to be downpours as we head into Sunday night and into the early morning hours of Monday.”
