Where is Tropical Storm Nate now?

Nate formed off the coast of Nicaragua on Thursday and is expected to drench part of Central America and Mexico.

Officials from the US National Hurricane Center predicted the storm to dump as much as 50 cm of rain across Nicaragua – with some localised areas receiving increased downpours.

The storm has sustained winds of around 40 mph (65 kph) and is likely to strengthen over the northwestern Caribbean Sea on Thursday night, moving into Friday.

Nate comes as Nicaragua has been struggling to deal with the impacts of near constant rain over the past 14 days.

Authorities placed the country on alert and warned of flooding and landslides as Nate arrived.

Currently the nation is struggling to deal with saturated land and swollen rivers.

Will Nate hit the United States?

Officials predict the storm could eventually hit US landfall as early as Sunday morning.

Within the storm’s forecast, the ‘cone of uncertainty’ shows Nate could hit anywhere from Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida’s Panhandle.

Could Tropical Storm Nate become a hurricane?

Officials believe Tropical Storm Nate will strike the US Gulf Coast as a hurricane over the weekend.

The forecast track showed it could brush across the tip of Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula late Friday night, before hitting the US on Sunday morning.

Tropical Storm Nate comes amid a very active hurricane season.

For the first time in history, three hurricanes threatened to strike land in September.
