    Nate is forming FAST with 90% probability & could become next HURRICANE of season in warm waters of Caribbean Sea …

    Showers and thunderstorms associated with an area of low pressure
    located over the southwestern Caribbean Sea have become better
    organized since yesterday. This system is expected to become a
    tropical depression later today while it moves northwestward toward
    the coast of Nicaragua. The low should move slowly northwestward
    across or near the eastern portions of Nicaragua and Honduras on
    Thursday, move into the northwestern Caribbean Sea by Friday, and
    emerge over the southern Gulf of Mexico by Saturday. Interests in
    Nicaragua, Honduras, the Yucatan peninsula and western Cuba should
    monitor the progress of this system as watches or warnings could be
    issued later today. An Air Force Reserve reconnaissance aircraft is
    scheduled to investigate the disturbance this afternoon. Regardless
    of development, this system will produce heavy rains over portions
    of Central America during the next few days, likely causing flash
    floods and mudslides.
    * Formation chance through 48 hours…high…90 percent.
    * Formation chance through 5 days…high…90 percent.


    Another one – unnerving for all


    [size=5]Just found this update on Accuweather as well on NATE becoming TS or hurricane in days ahead .. La Nina is exact opposite of El Nino (which is why Atlantic hurricanes have been so bad this season) …

    Nasty Nate – lets hope not


    I agree not another please – this has got up quick – ty as always CI


    TS NATE became official at 8am EDT … 40mph & 999mb (it’s strengthening to hurricane force rapidly over next 48 hours)


    Will be keeping an eye on the spaghetti models for this one


    Tropical storm Nate has helped push oil up $1 today as expected to travel straight north through the Gulf as a Category 1 storm, but it could strengthen further and is likely to lead to production shutdowns if strengthens.



    pm update still has Tropical Storm #Nate strengthening to hurricane and making landfall in southeast LA, MS, AL on Sunday morning


    15% of U.S. Gulf of Mexico oil output shut ahead of Tropical Storm Nate


    FILL UP TODAY — this puppy is heading straight to NEW ORLEANS region — as probably CAT 1 or 2 hurricane … and there could be some temporary decrease in gas supply in our hurricane battered nation


    WOW — I just learned that 22 have perished in southern Mexico already & prayers extend for those impacted … NATE is a FAST moving storm (which is why it’ll only be CAT 1 or so hitting land)
