Otto will landfall, possibly as a rare late-season hurricane, in southern Nicaragua or northern Costa Rica on Thanksgiving Day. Even if Otto makes landfall as a tropical storm, it would be the latest in a calendar year to do so in Nicaragua.

This will be the first Atlantic tropical cyclone on record to make landfall on Thanksgiving Day, according to Dr. Jeff Masters and Bob Henson of wunderground.com.

Heavy rain, flash flooding and mudslides will be major concerns for Central America, including Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Panama. Some locations may pick up 20 inches of rain from Otto.

In addition, areas of heavy rain well to the north of the circulation may trigger flooding in parts of Honduras and Belize.
