Weather forecasters say former hurricane Eta could regain its strength as it heads toward Florida this weekend.
The storm remained a tropical depression overnight, and is currently dumping heavy rain and causing flash flooding in Honduras.
Forecasters warn, however, that current models show the system reorganizing when it moves back over the Caribbean Sea on Friday.
The National Hurricane Center is predicting that Eta will pick up strength as it moves toward north Cuba and south Florida.
4 A.M. Advisory: Tropical Depression #Eta continues to produce heavy rains and life-threatening flooding over portions of Central America. The track remains uncertain, but South Florida is in the cone further down the line. We have the latest on WSVN starting at 5 a.m. #7weather pic.twitter.com/z6xRZfpnAd

They say Eta could reach Cuba by Sunday and possibly Florida by Monday.
If Eta makes landfall in the U.S., it would break the record for the most named storms to make a U.S. landfall in one season.
Then, the storm could spin back out into the Gulf….
