Tropical storm Nate is expected to become a Cat 1 hurricane by this weekend

Keep in mind its path and intensity is still unclear, people in these areas should monitor the storm closely.

Location: 14.5°N 84.0°W
Moving: NW at 9 mph
Min pressure: 1001 mb
Max sustained: 40 mph

early forecast models showed it taking aim this weekend at the central US Gulf Coast, likely as a minor hurricane, according to the National Hurricane Center.

Cat 1 is weak. We'll probably get like 40 mph winds and some rain in NWFL.

Already getting five times more rain than during all of Irma.

We are under a flood warning and this is the first time in my almost 40 years in Florida that I am actually fearful that my home may be flooded.

I have never seen this much rain continuously, ever, during my time in Florida, and on the back of the rains we got from the previous hurricanes, it is daunting.

A cat one when it enters the Gulf of Mexico. how fast do they strengthen this time of year between arriving in the Gulf and hitting the coast?

Thank You for starting this thread.

If it makes it to the N Ga Mountains like Irma did, I'll post updates.

Irma decimated trees up here in the mountains. Community spent days clearing trees from roads.

Stay safe all.

Yeah. Pretty much my sentiments, minus the blame.

Whatever will be, will be.

Hope you don't get flooded.
Best prepare for power outages as well.

Fortunately it's a weak hurricane amd it's not actually become one yet. The NHC are pretty good st predicting them though.

Stay safe and dry.

Well we saw how Harvey exploded in strength just 17 hours before reaching Texas.

Was without power for a whole week with Irma. My land-line is still down.

I live in area where the power goes out if you sneeze hard enough, so being without power is not an odd occurrence, just an uncomfortable one.

Water seeping in would be a nightmare, so I pray that the water stays outdoors.

Maybe it is time for me to blow up my kayak.

I have been watching this.

A bit of a complicated setup. The NHC has good confidence in the track, but very little in the intensity. The storm is over land around northeast Nicaragua and southeast Hondouras. It may make landfall again over the Yucatan before emerging in the gulf. If it misses the Yucatan then it will have much more time over water to strengthen.

Also there is a large tropical wave over Florida that may influence it.

They are flying the NOAA Gulfstream jet for better sampling, this information will be extra input for tomorrows computer model runs.

Right now it appears a minimal hurricane will be making landfall between Lousiana and the Florida panhandle.

Nothing personal but I love people without power. The last time here it was 28 for a high and many feet of snow and all roads plugged for 4 days. The power came a week later. Try no powering the cols for a couple of weeks and see whats left

My first vacation in fifteen years and not only is the storm going to hit home (Essential personnel @work) but it's going to arc up and dump rain on my campsite for the first half of my camping trip. Even if my job doesn't cancel my vacation my trip is still going to suck.

I hate hurricanes.

I don't get what you're saying but yeah all storms are bad.
One thing about snowstorms is it sure does look pretty!
Then it's like ok enough now!
Snowed like crazy here this past winter.
The year before it was freezing rain and my trees snapped in half and fell over

My fatheris in Fort Myers. He said with the last hurricane, the fire dept ran out of sandbags, so they said to go to Home Depot and get heavy duty garbage bags and "play sand". The salesperson told my Dad he would be better off getting 40 pound bags of topsoil or potting soil (said they`d shift and seal openings better). Dad did, and he said worked like a charm. His house was the only one on that street without water intrusion.

Just food for thought.

Best of luck!!!!

The latest discussion is out. While they have not upped the intensity, the NHC said a stronger storm is possible.

Rapid intensification cannot be ruled out, the SHIPS(primary intensity forecast model) indicated a 50% chance of RI.

The storm will be moving fast when it makes landfall in the northern Gulf of Mexico. This will help minimize flooding and possibly be surge but enhance the winds on the east side of the storm.

All I can say is, thank goodness it won't pass over Puerto Rico.

Here in Georgia, it hasn't rained since Irma. We can use the leftovers of a tropical storm. By the way, it isn't a hurricane as the title suggests. Doom porn?

It is expected to be a hurricane by the time it reaches the Gulf of Mexico.
