Latest on Tropical Storm ETA

The image below is from the latest European Prediction System (courtesy Wxbell).  These are called “spaghetti models” and highlight uncertainty in track.  The important line to follow is the black line (Ensemble Mean).

The American Ensemble Model (GEFS) below shows a similar potential track of ETA near the Keys and then eventually moving north or northeast toward the northeastern Gulf. ETA should eventually get picked up by a trough digging into the United States later this week and could bring some heavy rainfall to our area on Thursday.

Potential Rainfall – Next seven days – according to the latest European Ensemble
