Hurricane Zeta has strengthened overnight, now packing max winds of ~85 mph according to recon aircraft. Winds in the eyewall could increase to around 100 mph before landfall in SE Louisiana this afternoon.
Outermost rain bands will reach my locale this morning and we could have tropical storm force winds here on Thursday :scared:

A Tropical Storm Watch has been issued for my area and along and north of I-85. Winds will generally be between 20-30 mph with gusts up to 45 mph. The best time frame for winds will begin late tonight and last through the morning hours tomorrow.  :o

Power was out at my house for around an hour..
A tree two houses up from mine fell and took out the power lines. Police and fire trucks were blocking the road while the power crews fixed the lines.
And the storm is moving out.

The cold temperatures have finally reached my locale yesterday and current temperatures are just above freezing :speechless: But we'll rebound quickly by Wednesday when our temperatures moderate back into the 70s with lows in the upper 40s to 50s.

Hurricane Hunter Aircraft investigating the storm find that Hurricane Eta continues to rapidly intensify. The National Hurricane Center expects winds  to further increase to 161 mph soon with gusts to 195 mph, making it a Category 5 hurricane at landfall.
Eta could very well become the most intense hurricane ever recorded in the Atlantic.
And we could be facing an epic catastrophe in Central America ....before it turns towards the United States. :o

From our regional NWS office
Quote
US National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC
 
An atmospheric river ahead of #Eta will likely bring heavy rain at times Wed into early Thur. Flash flooding of low lying areas including streams and urban areas will be possible, focused across the Blue ridge east to the I-85 corridor and points north.
Rain estimates between 3-4 inches are possible by weeks end :o

The 2020 Hurricane season in a nutshell:
With Tropical Storm Eta's landfall last evening in the Florida Keys, there have been 12 landfalling tropical cyclones in the U.S. this year. The previous record was 9 landfalls in the U.S. in a single season.
With the formation of Theta in the mid-Atlantic, that makes a total of 29 named storms breaking the old record of 28 back in 2005 :o

Yesterday we had a new record high of 80° old record was 78° set back in 2006.
We broke 3 records yesterday: warmest low(for the date and month), warmest high, and highest dew point for November on record.
Flooding rains are expected here today :o

That's almost 25,000,000,0000 gallons of water fell in the county in about 6hrs today! That's over 22.3 million tons of water!

Tropical storm Iota has formed and is forecasted to become a Major Hurricane before hitting Central America.
I'm sure they don't want to give 1 Iota about Iota :rimshot:

This will be So devastating.. Iota is now expected to be a 140mph Major Hurricane.
Many of the same areas are still dealing with recovery from Eta a couple weeks ago..
This is Unprecedented and this is the middle of November :speechless:
