DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
———————-
At 700 AM EST (1200 UTC), the center of Hurricane Eta was located
near latitude 14.8 North, longitude 81.1 West. Eta is moving toward
the west near 10 mph (17 km/h), and this general motion is expected
to continue through this morning. A slower motion toward the
west-southwest is forecast by this afternoon and continuing into
Tuesday. On the forecast track, the center of Eta is expected to
approach the northeastern coast of Nicaragua this afternoon, and
make landfall within the Hurricane Warning area in Nicaragua by
early Tuesday. The center of Eta is forecast to move farther inland
over northern Nicaragua through early Wednesday.

Data from an Air Force Reserve reconnaissance aircraft indicate
that the maximum sustained winds have increased to near 90 mph (150
km/h) with higher gusts. Continued strengthening, possibly rapid,
is expected through early Tuesday, and Eta could be a major
hurricane when landfall occurs by early Tuesday. Weakening will
begin after the system moves inland.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 25 miles (35 km) from
the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 125
miles (205 km).

The latest minimum central pressure reported by an Air Force
Reserve reconnaissance aircraft is 974 mb (28.76 inches).
