Tropical Storm Eta Prompts Warnings for Florida

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.

The forecast track for Tropical Storm Eta on Saturday, Nov. 7, 2020 shows the system moving toward Cuba and the Cayman Islands before a potential impact across parts of South Florida.

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.”

About Mike and Jamie Sylvester

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and RunDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 16 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
