Another Tropical Storm Is Brewing In The Caribbean

September 2017 is now officially the most active month on record for Atlantic hurricanes.  We’ve had so many hurricanes this year that it’s easy to overlook the fact that there are almost two full months left in the current season.  Lest we forget, the Atlantic hurricane season is 6 months long–June 1 through November 30.

The 16th tropical depression of the year is now in the western Caribbean.  If its winds reach over 39 mph, the depression will become the 14th tropical storm of the season, and it will be christened “Nate”.

Forecasters with the National Hurricane Center (NHC) expect the depression to head northward through the northeast coasts of Nicaragua and Honduras today.  By Friday the storm will move through the northeast Yucatan peninsula of Mexico where it will likely affect the resorts of Cancun and Cozumel.

As it emerges into the warm waters of the Gulf Of Mexico on Saturday, the tropical depression is expected to strengthen into tropical storm Nate.  “Nate” would then continue on a northern trajectory and on Sunday would make landfall on the U.S. Gulf Coast somewhere between New Orleans and Tampa.

At this point it’s all speculation, but the warm waters of the Gulf continue to be conducive to storm growth.  Let’s just pray that this particular storm doesn’t become known as “Nate The Great”.
