Live coverage of Nate begins today

9am ET Friday, October 6, 2017

It is time to head down to the Gulf Coast to set up equipment ahead of what is forecast to be hurricane Nate this weekend. From here on out, I will be streaming live from the vehicle cam which is embedded via YouTube below. I will post video discussions along the way but I encourage you to tune in here at 11am ET, 5pm ET and again at 11pm ET as I will go over the very latest info from the NHC live as it comes in. I can explain everything as it is happening – something unique to the live streaming experience.

Also, be sure to look for our app, Hurricane Impact, on the Apple App Store and on Google Play. Search “Hurricane Impact” and have access to all things hurricanetrack related, including our multiple live streams and live weather data – all in one convenient package.

Thanks for tuning in – any questions? Hit me up on Facebook or Twitter: @hurricanetrack

NHC Upgrades TD 16 to TS Nate – future a little uncertain

9:30 AM ET Thursday, October 5

The NHC upgraded the depression to tropical storm Nate via their 8am ET intermediate advisory. The storm is about to cross over the eastern portions of Nicaragua and Honduras and then emerge in to the very warm waters of the northwest Caribbean Sea. From there, Nate could strengthen but how much depends on how well its inner core can consolidate. There are a lot of competing weather systems in the region and this makes the overall forecast very complex.

I have posted a video discussion that covers these topics and more – check it out below. Note: I will post another video update around 5pm ET this afternoon.

October looks to begin where September left off: busy

NHC 5-Day Tropical Weather Outlook Map

It looks like we will continue with the very busy 2017 hurricane season right on in to October. The latest 5-day outlook from the National Hurricane Center indicates that there are a couple of areas of interest to monitor over the next few days.

As Lee and Maria both head out in to the far reaches of the North Atlantic, we will begin focusing more on areas closer to the western part of the basin from here on out. The natural progression of climatology suggests that the region between Africa and the Lesser Antilles becomes less favorable this time of year. As such, we shift our attention more and more to the southwest Atlantic, Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico.

I will have  full video discussion posted early this afternoon and will go over not only the current systems that are worth watching but also a look in to what October may bring and why.
