Well Harvey went from cat 1 or 2 to 5 before it hit Texas pretty much overnight so...

I guess its the central coast's turn finally! Current track has it directly hitting myself in lower AL. Hurricane party!

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?


No doom porn. I don't do that. The title says " expected" as it's expected to become a hurricane . I made it clear it's a tropical storm amd things can change.

I'm just using what the NHC has forecasted. I think they're a good source.
Just giving a warning / heads up.
The weekend is fast approaching and this storm wasn't talked about

The death toll has risen to 22 in Central America
Here's more, latest update:


500 PM EDT Thu Oct 05 2017
Nate is forecast to reach the northern Gulf Coast this weekend as
a hurricane, and the threat of direct impacts from wind, storm
surge, and heavy rainfall is increasing from Louisiana through the
Florida Panhandle. A hurricane watch and storm surge watch will
likely be issued for portions of the northern Gulf Coast tonight or
Friday morning, and residents in these areas should monitor the
progress of Nate and heed any advice given by local officials.

I'm excited for my first direct hit hurricane here in New Orleans.

At least it's looking like it will move through quickly and won't get stronger than maybe a Cat 2 worst case. Hopefully they can get more of the pumps up and running over the next 2 days.

There will be flooding and the power is definitely going to go out, but hopefully that'll be the worst of it.

Sorry the whole typing fast and not watching spell check. Blizzards suck without power.

My wife and I saved and planed for a year for this vacation and now we are standing right in the path of the storm. It should be here Sunday, I'll post updates if we have communication. The wife is afraid, it's her first one, I am apprehensive. It my third hurricane. I'm trying to decide what to do.

Yep.. Meteorologists have expressed "amazement" over how fast IRMA, MARIA and HARVEY strengthened this year. It's like something injected each of them with steroids.

Last I heard, NATE won't make landfall until Monday, at the earliest. He is supposed to slow down after entering the Gulf of Mexico.

Oh that's not good to have a trip spoiled like that.
Should only be a cat 1 if that's any consolation.
Still though, there might be power outages

Stay safe, all in possible areas, and stay dry! Hoping it stays weak, because too many have had too much of hurricane weather already.

The pressure is dropping and convection is increasing. The next advisory will be out at 11am(edt).

There is a strong possibility the storm will rapidly intensify so it will be worth watching, especially if you in the watch/warning area.

Where were you planning on going? A Cat one really is not something to be super scared of....Take extra provisions and make a camping/survival vacation out of it!!

I once fished in a Cat one hurricane just because I had already planned the trip and pulled the boat 600 miles....Make lemonade!!

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


I'll be having a little Hurricane party myself in NWFL...Maybe we need to join forces!! AKA more beer

If the power goes out I may have a coffin box freezer full of meat venison to cook plenty for all ATS members in the area lol.

Food, water, ice, and liquor, man. Just the essentials. I don't even tape my windows for a Cat 1. Here's to hoping it stays moving fast.

If we lose power for too long I'm going to have some happy neighbors. I'd just bought five lbs of shrimp for campfire poboys on my now-canceled trip.

I would check the refund policy regarding hurricane cancellation. Not knowing the area you are visiting, it is likely that it could become under mandatory evacuation if certain conditions should arise. Otherwise if you do decide to go, be prepared for a some wind and rain.

Prepare for Cat 2 , just in case


Nate is likely to be a Category 1 or Category 2 hurricane on Saturday night when it makes landfall on the U.S. Gulf Coast between Southeast Louisiana and the Florida Panhandle.....
.....
Given the way this season has gone, residents would be wise to leave some margin of error and prepare for a Category 2 hurricane

It is gaining strength but fortunatly no rapid intensification.

The storm is moving quickly to the north which should be an inhibiting factor for strengthening and making rapid intensification unlikely.

Fast moving storms tend to have trouble strengthening and with its speed it will have less time over water.

Regardless, the NE Gulf of Mexico will experience hurricane conditions.
