Tropical Storm Nate could reach Maryland as tropical depression, but first tracks toward Gulf Coast

October 6th, 2017 by WCBC Radio

Tropical Storm Nate is forecast to strengthen as it approaches the Gulf Coast, and could reach the Baltimore region as a tropical depression early next week. The storm was closing in on Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula on Friday but is forecast to speed northward over the coming days. Hurricane warnings were issued Friday morning for Louisiana and Mississippi, with the storm expected to hit by Sunday.

National Hurricane Center meteorologists warned that “the threat of direct impacts from wind, storm surge, and heavy rainfall is increasing from Louisiana through the western Florida Panhandle.”

Nate is not expected to linger over those areas. Forecasters expect it to cross the Southeastern U.S. on Sunday and Monday.
