The combination of a slow-moving cold front and the moisture from Tropical Storm Eta will result in a soggy end to the week. Rain will build in on Wednesday with widespread rain on Thursday. An isolated storm is possible both days. Highs will warm to near 80 on Wednesday, then drop to the low 70s on Thursday. Clouds and scattered showers will linger for Friday with highs in the mid 60s.

Tropical Storm Eta moving away from south Florida. Eta is centered about 80 miles WNW of Key West, Florida and moving west at 13 mph. On the forecast track, the center of Eta will gradually move away from the Florida Keys and south Florida today, and will remain over the southeastern Gulf of Mexico tonight through Wednesday.
Maximum sustained winds remain near 65 mph with higher gusts. Some strengthening is forecast during the next day or so, and Eta is forecast to become a hurricane when it moves over the southeastern Gulf of Mexico.
Showers and thunderstorms associated with a non-tropical low pressure system located several hundred miles southwest of the Azores continue to get gradually better organized. Further development is expected, and a tropical or subtropical storm will likely form during the next few days while the system moves east or ENE over the northeastern Atlantic Ocean.
* Formation chance through 48 hours: Medium (50%)
* Formation chance through 5 days: High (70%)
A tropical wave is forecast to move over the central Caribbean Sea, where an area of low pressure could form in a couple of days. Environmental conditions are forecast to be conducive for development, and a tropical depression could form late this week or over the weekend while the system moves slowly west.
* Formation chance through 48 hours: Low (0%)
* Formation chance through 5 days: Medium (50%)
