Tropical Depression 31 has strengthened into Tropical Storm Iota, the 30th named storm of the season. The forecast calls for it to strengthen into a Cat 3 hurricane before it makes landfall across Central America near Nicaragua and Honduras early next week. This is same area was recently hard hit Category 4 Eta. What will be Iota will bring that area more flooding rain. This is not a threat to the Gulf of Mexico thanks to a strong cold front pushing into the southern Gulf early next week.
Tropical Storm Eta is no longer a tropical system and is now a post-tropical low off the coast of the Carolinas. It is moving quickly to the northeast into the Atlantic where it will remain a strong area of low pressure. This is no longer a threat to land.
Tropical Storm Theta remains in the eastern Atlantic SSE of the Azores. The forecast calls for it to move to the east and slowly weaken as it tracks north of the Azores and near the Canary Islands this weekend and into early next week
Elsewhere…the rest of the tropics will stay quiet for the next 5 days
