Nate Update: Storm moves across Nicaragua, will bring torrential rains

Tropical Storm Nate has max winds of 40 mph this afternoon and is moving across northeast Nicaragua.

Nate will bring torrential rains to portions of Central America (isolated amounts up to 30 inches in Nicaragua).

The storm is moving to the NW at 9 mph. On the current forecast track, the storm will head north into the Gulf of Mexico during the weekend, possibly strengthening into a hurricane.

A western shift in the cone has taken Savannah out of the direct path of the storm, and there is now a high confidence for no significant impacts directly associated with Nate for our area.

However, due to the continued onshore winds and already high astronomical tides, minor to possibly moderate coastal flooding is still likely around the times of high tide.
