Latest on Tropical Depression Eta:
Overall, there isn't too much new really. Tropical Storm Watches will likely be issued tonight for southern Florida. Peak intensity is still projected to be 65 mph by the National Hurricane Center. I have included the projected tracks from 00Z guidance (2nd image), projected rainfall (3rd image), and maximum projected wind gusts from the National Weather Service (4th image).
From the NHC:
There is an increasing risk of impacts from wind and flash and urban flooding due to heavy rainfall in portions of southern Florida, the Florida Keys, and portions of the Bahamas this weekend and early next week. Tropical Storm or Hurricane Watches will likely be issued for a portion of this area tonight.
The HWRF and HMON models still suggest the possibility that a tight inner wind core may develop, however, the guidance has trended weaker since this morning, and the new intensity forecast is above the bulk of the guidance. After 72 h, dry air entrainment is expected to cause the cyclone to weaken.
