Invest 96L is in the Caribbean and likely to become the 29th storm of the season. It would be called Eta. It’s ridiculous to see so many model forecast of this to become a major hurricane and to make landfall in the United States in early November. Incredible Hurricane Season 2020 lives on.

Edit: this is actually the 28th storm of the season.

TD 29 at 5 PM, now TS Eta.

Track forecast is currently for a landfall near the Nicaragua/Honduras border, but the GEFS ensemble remains insistent on another idea...

And about half the models seem to take it back toward the Gulf! :eek:

Incredible intensification. The models are even more wild. GFS has it going around Cuba and in the fantasy range a ridge drives it into the GOM. Euro shows it reintensifying into a monster south of Cuba for a couple days.
Given the trend this year it'll find a way to hit Louisiana.

Yeah, this time of year can have some crazy paths as upper level winds change much more frequently and stronger with troughs and ridges. One of the most bizarre Caribbean storms was “wrong way Lenny.”
