Palm Beach County is back on the cone of uncertainty for Tropical Depression Eta which could strengthen back into a tropical storm today as it heads toward Cuba.

The NHC expects Eta to approach the Florida Keys on Monday before turning northwest over the Gulf. Up to 10 inches of rain is expected in South Florida, Tampa Bay and Central Florida.

Residents should clear debris from storm drains and stay off the roads during peak flooding.

It is still bringing torrential rain and flooding to Central America, where it struck as a category 4 hurricane earlier this week.

As Eta heads back into the Caribbean sea, it will move toward the Cayman Islands and Cuba while re-intensifying during the weekend.

That means the wet weather and wind will begin for us on Saturday, continuing with heavy rain and tropical storm force winds most likely through the early part of next week.
