As of Tuesday, morning Tampa Bay is no longer in the cone of uncertainty when it comes to Tropical Storm Eta. And while forecasters don’t really know if it’ll strengthen as it moves slowly northwest in the Gulf of Mexico, WFTS’ BOTB-winning weatherman Denis Philips says, “squally weather is still possible later in the week.” Eta, Phillips added, “Still needs to be watched.”

For now, according to this Phillips Twitter graphic, Eta is expected to make landfall near the Florida-Alabama border early Friday morning.
