Hurricane Nate Bears Down on Central Gulf Coast

Tropical Storm Watch issued for Alabama's Gulf Coast; Prater says Central AL will be impacted this weekend

As of 10 p.m. Friday, Nate is moving toward the NNW at 22 mph. Hurricane Nate is expected to make landfall as a Category 2 hurricane sometime Saturday night into Sunday morning near Gulfport, MS. A storm surge warning is now in effect for Morgan City, Louisiana to the Alabama/Florida border and for the norther and western shores of Lake Pontchartrain.

The storm will be near hurricane intensity when it approaches Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula late on Friday, where up to 20 cm of rain were possible, the NHC said.

A tropical storm watch has been issued from east of the Okaloosa-Walton County line to Indian Pass, Florida, and west of Morgan City, Louisiana to Intracoastal City, Louisiana. The storm battered Central America with heavy rain this week, killing at least 21 people. A few showers are possible Tuesday and Wednesday as well, due to the humid air mass sticking over the region.

He says with Nate moving so fast, any impacts will be over by midday on Sunday.

WXII 12 Meteorologist Michelle Kennedy said Nate's track and intensity at landfall will help determine whether or not the Triad may see an increase in rainfall totals and wind concerns.

Edwards has authorized 1,300 National Guard troops to mobilize ahead of the storm; some are heading to New Orleans to help monitor the pumps, he said. The track forecast is unchanged and is quite confident; but the intensity forecast is still rather uncertain.

Furthermore, the Tropical Storm Nate could be the third hurricane to hit the US territory in a month and a half.

He said more than 1,000 National Guard troops had been mobilised with a number sent to New Orleans to monitor the drainage pumps there. The potential for rain will intensify and we could see some tropical storm force gusts.

The best way to keep up with all of the developments of Hurricane Nate is to have the WWL-TV news app. Top sustained winds were 60 mph, just short of the 74 mph that would make Nate the season's ninth hurricane.
