A newly formed tropical storm in the southwestern Caribbean is forecast to strengthen into a hurricane that could affect the U.S. Gulf Coast.

At 11 a.m., Tropical Depression Sixteen was located about 25 miles south-southwest of San Andres Island and about 210 miles south-southeast of the Nicaragua/Honduras border.

NHC forecasters say that Nate should move across northeastern Nicaragua and eastern Honduras later today and then over the northwestern Caribbean Sea tonight and Friday.

The forecast cone below by the National Hurricane Center shows the possibility of it hitting Sunday anywhere between Louisiana and Florida. Residents of the Gulf Coast from Louisiana to Florida were advised to monitor the storm.

"This certainly ranks among the busier seasons", Keim said. Stay with Storm Team 3 as we track the storm, and download the Storm Team 3 weather app for the latest on Tropical Storm Nate.

The system has a 70 percent chance of becoming a tropical depression in the next 48 hours, and an 80 percent change through the next five days. Warm ocean waters often help support the development of tropical storms and hurricanes. The storm has triggered flood warnings in those areas, along with a hurricane watch in Mexico's Yucatan peninsula, from Punta Herrero to Rio Lagartos.

The storm will weaken rapidly once it makes landfall, and the remnants could impact Virginia Sunday night and Monday with heavy rainfall.

They have converged on the idea of a tropical system moving over the Gulf of Mexico but with large differences in track, speed of movement and intensity.
