Tracking Nate: Parts of Gulf Coast under a Hurricane Warning

Sunday's warm-up into a summery, almost tropical-like air mass will be short-lived as the remnants of Tropical Storm Nate will be bringing in the moisture for Columbus Day Monday.

A number of Central American countries have felt the full force of Nate, at the time a tropical storm, as it made its way north.

Lafitte, Grand Isle and some areas of St. Bernard Parish not protected by the levee system are currently under a mandatory evacuation order.

NWS officials predicted winds in our area of 39 miles-per-hour or higher, with gusts between 40-50 mph.

A storm surge watch is in effect on Florida's Gulf Coast to Indian Pass, Florida. Additional counties are expected to be added.

The potential for storm surge covers a broad area of the northern Gulf Coast.

The National Hurricane Center expects heavy rainfall of three to six inches of rain with isolated totals of 10 inches east of the Mississippi River. "Max highs will hover near 90 degrees, with lows in the mid- to upper 70s".

The previous hurricane warning for metropolitan New Orleans and Lank Pontchartrain has been downgraded to a tropical storm warning.

Puerto Rico is still reeling from the effects of Hurricane Maria, as are Texas and Florida from hurricanes Harvey and Irma, respectively. The remainder of the week will be comfortable and dry.

After that, the NHC predicts the storm will make its U.S. landfall along the eastern Louisiana, Mississipi or Alabama coastlines. "If those winds start to pick up, especially in the (Central Business District), someone could catch a stop sign to the head".
