Eta made its third landfall but the second landfall in Florida early this morning at 4:00 near Cedar Key as a Tropical Storm. The sustained winds were at 50 mph and the central pressure was 996 mb. The first landfall was along the coast of northeast Nicaragua as a Category 4 hurricane on November 3rd and the second landfall was in the middle Florida Keys as a strong Tropical Storm on November 9th.

Eta continues to bring heavy rain and wind to portions of the state as the center moves across north Florida.

Eta will head back out over open water into the Atlantic today/tonight. The track steers it away from the Mid Atlantic and Northeast.

Eta is not the only player in town. Theta is also a player in this game called Atlantic Hurricane Season 2020. Theta, though, will stay away from the U.S.

The last player in the game doesn't have a name yet. It is a tropical wave in the central Caribbean, south of Hispaniola moving westward. It will likely become a Tropical Depression in the next 48 hours.

Stay tuned!
