Tropical Depression Sixteen forms in the SW Caribbean

Tropical Depression Sixteen forms in the SW Caribbean

Hurricane hunters are scheduled to fly into the system today.

As it nears the USA coastline the storm, which would be named Nate, could strengthen to a Category 1 hurricane on the five-step Saffir-Simpson scale, the hurricane center said.

Forecasts show that it will move over Central America and head to the open Gulf of Mexico, where it will likely strengthen further, before heading to the US mainland.

But while the track forecast has consensus, there is less agreement on intensity.

The long-term forecast showed the storm reaching the U.S. Gulf coast by Sunday.

If a closed circulation of low pressure is found with enough thunderstorm activity, the system could be classified as a tropical depression or tropical storm.

"We will be monitoring the southern and central Caribbean for possible development around the third week of October", Kottlowski said.

The National Hurricane Center is predicting that Tropical Storm Nate will thread the needle between the Yucatan Peninsula and western Cuba, allowing it to continue to intensify slowly over time.

The system, called Invest 90L for now, was a broad area of low pressure in the southwest Caribbean as of early Wednesday morning.

Interests in Nicaragua and Honduras were urged to monitor the progress of the system over the next couple of days.

The GFS (American Model) is putting this system right in the middle of the Gulf by Saturday evening.

The exact timing of a cold front sweeping toward the East Coast will be a huge factor as to the landfall location.

The National Weather Service says that Florida's Gulf Coast could be potentially impacted by another hurricane-just weeks after Hurricane Irma slammed the state.

"It's not terribly unusual to see storms this time of year develop", Godsey said.
