Meteorologist Dave Nussbaum says Tropical Storm Zeta is currently forecast to hit the Louisiana coast as either a strong tropical storm or a minimal hurricane.
Tropical Storm Zeta is getting better organized and is expected to become a hurricane later today. The forecast has it moving NW and making a first landfall near Cozumel tonight as a hurricane. Then it will continue NW across the Yucatan and into the Gulf of Mexico on Tuesday as a minimal hurricane.
Zeta could get a little stronger over the southern Gulf on Tuesday. It will be pulled north by a trough of low pressure and it will be moving along the western side of a ridge of high pressure over Florida. Zeta will be moving over cooler waters, battling wind shear, dry air and the cold front. These factors will help to weaken the storm a little and making it messy. This will put it on a path toward the northern Gulf Coast.
