Tropical Update – November 11, 2020

A bit busy on this Wednesday

Our look at the Tropics on this November 11th, shows 2 active systems and 2 areas to watch in the Atlantic and Pacific Basins. Tropical Storm Eta continues to work into the Florida Peninsula with sustained wind speeds of 65 mph as it continues to move to the north at 12 mph. The forecast track will keep Eta as a tropical storm as it works across the northern peninsula and along the coasts of Georgia and South Carolina. Once it works into the Atlantic, it will start to dissipate as we get into the weekend. We’re also watching Tropical Storm Theta 540 miles south-southwest of the Azores with sustained wind speeds of 65 mph. With an easterly movement at 12 mph, Theta will move into an area will it will start to dissipate over the weekend. No threats to land are expected with Theta.

We’ll be keeping an eye on a tropical wave producing rain and t-storms in the east-central Caribbean Sea over the next 5 days. With this low becoming better organized and continuing to work over a favorable environment, this has a 90% chance to become a tropical depression over the next 5 days. Over in the Eastern Pacific, we’ll watch for a broad low expected to form southwest of the Mexican coast late this week. With conditions favorable for development, this future wave will have a 30% chance to become a depression over the next 5 days.
