Today and Tonight: Temperatures will remain in the 50s through the late morning. Keep that in mind if you are heading to the polls before work today.

IN THE TROPICS
Hurricane Eta continues to strengthen in the Caribbean as it approaches Nicaragua. It is expected to make landfall in Nicaragua today as a powerful Category 4 Hurricane. Then, this storm will move throughout Central America and it is likely to re-enter the Caribbean over the weekend. Some strengthening will be possible at that point, but that won’t be until the weekend. Click here to see the latest forecast cone.
