Tropical Storm Nate Aims at Gulf Coast

NASA Goddard Space Flight Center |
Tropical Depression Sixteen now Tropical Storm Nate.

Tropical Storm Nate formed in the southwestern part of the Caribbean Sea Wednesday morning and is moving north. Nate is hovering over Nicaragua and Honduras today but will soon be back over the warm waters.

The storm is still disorganized but should have more favorable conditions to develop once it emerges back over water. It is now predicted to become a hurricane and strike the gulf coast by the later part of the weekend and into early next week. 

Meteorologist are still unsure about how strong Nate will be by that time, but urging residents in it's path to over prepare. The path is still uncertain. Residents from Louisiana to Florida should keep an eye on this storm.
