Tropical Storm Zeta has now officially formed in the Caribbean Sea and is on track to enter the Gulf of Mexico in the next couple of days before heading to the Gulf Coast. Here's the latest...

The National Hurricane Center reports Tropical Storm Zeta currently has maximum sustained winds of 40 mph, and is located roughly 290 miles south-southeast of the western tip of Cuba as of 10 a.m. (10/25/20).

The current forecast has Zeta traveling toward the west-northwest with an increase in forward speed is expected by Monday (10/26/20).

So, how will Zeta impact Louisiana and Acadiana?

From NOLA.com -

"The NHC said it's confident in Zeta's track for the next three days thanks to good agreement among computer models, but uncertainty increases on exactly when Zeta might turn north. The cone of uncertainty past three days stretches as far west as Vermilion Bay and as far east as Destin, Florida."

The latest 10 am track does show a slight shift east from yesterday, but we'll keep an eye on Zetta and update you as we get new information.
