Tropical Storm ETA shifts further west, could head north toward the panhandle

In its latest track, Tropical Storm ETA shifted even more west back into the Gulf of Mexico, projected to head north, possibly toward the panhandle.

The latest path leaves Central Florida out of the storm's path.

The National Hurricane Center said the storm slowed down Monday night, moving at just 9 mph, with maximum sustained winds of 50 mph.

Right now, ETA is moving southwestward over the southeastern Gulf of Mexico.

FOX 35 Chief Meteorologist Glenn Richards said there are no warnings or watches in place for Central Florida.

He said ETA could also dissolve into a weaker system or dissipate all together.
