MiamiHerald / A tropical depression churning across the southern Caribbean could become Tropical Storm Nate by late Wednesday, on track to hit the Gulf Coast, and possibly Florida, as a hurricane over the weekend.
In their latest advisory, National Hurricane Center forecasters said the storm is moving over warm waters and encountering light wind shear that could allow quick intensification. It’s possible sustained winds could reach 85 mph in three days, making it a Category 1 storm as it approaches the Gulf coast on Saturday. Wednesday evening forecasters upped their intensity forecast from earlier in the day, but said there’s still a chance the storm could weaken as it crosses Central America and the Yucatan.
