We keep rain around Tuesday and possibly into Veterans Day as rounds of showers pass quickly in the moist flow.

Winds will decrease Tuesday and Wednesday as high pressure moves to the east and guides Tropical storm Eta through the Keys and into the Gulf where it wanders next week off the west Florida coast.

Forecast models predict a slow motion northward through Thursday but they have also struggled predicting this system’s track more than any other this hurricane season.
