Heavy rains are expected in parts of Central America already flooded by Eta, Iota



The region expects another 10 inches of rain.

More heavy rain is on its way to Central America as the region is still dealing with the severe flooding from Hurricanes Eta and Iota.

Belize, Guatemala and Honduras can see up to 1

0 inches of rain this weekend. This rain comes in the wake of both Eta’s 2-3 feet of rain and Iota’s additional 2-3 feet of rain just two weeks apart.

While exact numbers still fluctuate due to the dozens of people still missing in floods and mudslides, reportedly at least 130 people died from Eta and a further 40 from Iota.

Hundreds of rescue crews are still searching for missing bodies amid the chaos and ongoing tropical rain.

Overall, the tropics are pretty quiet this week as the official end of the Atlantic hurricane season approaches, which is November 30th.

A tropical disturbance in the western Atlantic is worth seeing on Saturday morning, but it has only a 10% chance of developing over the next five days.

This has been the most active Atlantic hurricane season ever recorded with 30 named storms.

In the US, the country has mostly moderate weather this weekend, and unusually warm weather continues along the east coast.

Afternoon highs over the northeast will be 5-15 degrees above the season average for Saturday, before cooler weather arrives briefly on Sunday.

New York City and Boston will both be at or near 60 degrees by Saturday afternoon.

On the plain, a cold front will sink over the southern plains and into the Mid-Mississippi Valley on Saturday afternoon and evening, posing a minor threat of thunderstorms.

No severe weather is expected with these storms, only minor hail and gusts of wind.
