According to the National Hurricane Center, South Florida is now in the concern of uncertainty for Hurricane Eta.
The storm made landfall Tuesday afternoon in Nicaragua as a category 4 with 140 mph winds.
Forecasters expect it to weaken as it emerges back into the Caribbean Sea, before restrengthening into a tropical storm.
That could mean rough weather for us this weekend, as the storm is expected to be located just south of Florida with 50 mph winds on Sunday afternoon.
As we all know, forecasts change constantly, so stay with 850 WFTL for the latest.
