Tropical Storm Nate Forecast To Impact United States As Hurricane

Posted: Updated:

A tropical depression chewing through the Caribbean sea has strengthened to a tropical storm named Nate. Tropical Storm Nate is dumping a large amount of rain along the Caribbean coast line of Nicaragua and Honduras with maximum sustained winds of 40 mph. This storm is slowly pushing northwest around 9 mph and will soak popular Mexican resorts such as Cancun and Cozumel with Hurricane Watch and Tropical Storm Warnings already in place for those areas.

Warm ocean water and relatively low wind shear over the Gulf of Mexico should mean after Tropical Storm Nate passes the Mexican peninsula, it will have a clear and wide open shot at becoming a hurricane landing on the US coast line. Current model and National Hurricane Center forecasts support the formation of a Category 1 hurricane with maximum sustained winds reaching up to 80 mph with heavy rain and some minor storm surge. While it's too soon to tell exactly where it will make landfall and exactly how strong this storm will be, residents of Louisiana to Florida should be prepared to take action in case the storm heads their way.

Tropical Storm Nate will make this the 14th tropical storm of the year and possibly the 9th hurricane if it does indeed strengthen over the next couple of days.
