Likely Tropical Storm Takes Aim at U.S. Gulf Coast

  • Tropical wave could affect western Caribbean

"Nate also did $225 million in damage in the U.S. The name Nate was retired after the 2017 season because of its impact on Central America, where 46 people died".

We could see some tropical downpours and storms here in the Midlands, all depending on the track of this potential system.

A storm system in the Caribbean stands a good chance of strengthening as it heads into the Gulf of Mexico, forecasters say. As of Saturday morning, the probabilities of cyclone formation were at 80 percent through Monday morning, and 90 percent over the next five days. The chance of development within 48 hours is zero, according to the latest forecast models update on Tuesday.

Long range forecast data is a bit split on two different scenarios (or outcomes) for this disturbance, ranging from just an area of tropical moisture and heavy rain to potentially a tropical storm.


Everyone along the northern Gulf from Louisiana to Florida should monitor this system through the next few days.

In October, hurricanes more often form in the Caribbean and head toward Florida and the gulf. The Category 1 hurricane will continue to move northward, before shifting east in the open ocean.

The 2018 Atlantic Hurricane Season is far from over - and the US will likely see yet another land-falling tropical system in the coming week.
