  • New tropical depression forms with Georgia in its crosshairs

The National Hurricane Center said in its 11 a.m. forecast Wednesday that a tropical depression in southwestern Caribbean is expected to strengthen into Tropical Storm Nate later today. The official forecast track now takes Nate to the Central Gulf Coast, possibly near New Orleans, before turning northeast and quickly weakening to a tropical storm as it tracks through MS and Alabama.

The system formed in the Caribbean Sea, and it is expected to move across Nicaragua and Honduras late Thursday and emerge into the northwestern Caribbean Sea on Friday.

The forecast is for Tropical Depression Sixteen to intensify into a tropical storm over the next 24 hours and push towards the southern Gulf of Mexico by Friday evening. It is a more likely candidate to become a tropical depression or tropical storm as it moves northward toward the Gulf by this weekend.

The forecast cone below by the National Hurricane Center shows the possibility of it hitting Sunday anywhere between Louisiana and Florida.

"This certainly ranks among the busier seasons", Keim said.

There is another tropical disturbance near Cuba that could also enter the Gulf, affecting areas along the Gulf Coast by this weekend.

The system was expected to bring 15 to 20 inches of rain and tropical storm conditions to portions of Nicaragua and Honduras through Thursday. It could make landfall as early as Sunday late afternoon.

Severe Weather Team 2 is tracking the storm and will have a look at its potential impact on Channel 2 Action News.
