Tropical Storm Nate Gets Stronger, Moves Faster — PM Update

Tropical Storm Nate blamed for 22 deaths; threatens US coast

Rainfall and gusty winds would be our primary threat unless Nate shifts more to the west. If Limestone County is east of the storm, the potential for severe weather - including spin-up tornadoes - increases.

Nate drenched Central America in rain that was blamed for at least 22 deaths.

The National Hurricane Center (NHC) has posted a hurricane watch from Morgan City, Louisiana, to the Mississippi/Alabama border; metropolitan New Orleans, Lake Pontchartrain, and Lake Maurepas, and from Punta Herrero to Rio Lagartos, Mexico.

The hurricane warning was issued for the U.S. coast from Grand Isle, La., to the Alabama-Florida border.

Louisiana Governor, John Bel Edwards, said, "Don't underestimate this storm, because you think it may be a tropical storm or a category one".

By Saturday, it will move into the open waters of the Gulf of Mexico, then begin a sharp turn to the northeast, putting it on a track toward the Southeast.

Hurricane Nate path update from NOAA National Hurricane Center (NHC) show the centre of the storm is moving quickly towards the northeastern tip of the Yucatan Peninsular and the Yucatan Channel. Orlando International Airport recorded.93 inches of rain Thursday, ending the rain deficit since Jan. 1.

A very moist air mass continues to stay in place across Central Florida leading to elevated rain chances through the weekend. Given the speed of this storm, it will limit the time over the Gulf not allowing it to strengthen rapidly.

Tropical Storm Nate is expected to intensify over the coming days. Plan on clouds mixing with sunshine, with scattered showers becoming an issue for the afternoon and evening.

Saturday could be a little warm for some, but the day will be dry. The concern with Nate is storm surge flooding and heavy rainfall that might impact the city's pumping system, which has seen setbacks over the past few weeks.
