HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Zeta is gone, but there is already a new area to monitor in the Caribbean Sea. The National Hurricane Center gives it a high (80%) chance of developing over the next 5 days into a tropical depression or a storm named Eta. At this time it's too soon to know where the system could impact land, but we are confident that the steering winds will keep it far away from Texas.
If Eta forms, it will tie for the most number of storms in a single Atlantic hurricane season. If we get to Theta, 2020 will claim yet another record.
Hurricane season officially ends on the last day of November.
