  • New tropical depression forms with Georgia in its crosshairs

Its current trajectory has it on track to make landfall somewhere between Mobile, Alabama, and Tallahassee, Florida, on Saturday night or Sunday morning as a weak Category 1 hurricane, with winds of about 75 miles per hour. Once it returns to the open Caribbean, it is likely to strengthen to hurricane strength, the National Hurricane Center said in its forecast statement.

Tropical Depression 16 formed Wednesday morning in the southern Caribbean near the coast of Nicaragua.

Harrisburg dodged two hurricanes, but it won't elude Tropical Storm Nate, forecasts say. The latest computer model forecasts bring the storm northward into the Gulf this weekend with potential landfall points from Louisiana to the Florida Big Bend.

"This certainly ranks among the busier seasons", Keim said.

Brevard County would see more wind like we've had this past week and yes-more rain if the storm tracks closer to the west coast of Florida.




Kickoff is 3:30 p.m. and the sold-out game will be televised on ABC 25.

Florida Governor Rick Scott said he has been getting regular weather briefings on Tropical Storm Nate, just weeks after Hurricane Irma hit.

According to the National Hurricane Center (NHC) in Miami, regardless of development, this system will likely produce heavy rains over portions of Central America during the next few days. "Sunday into Monday, even on into Tuesday".

The center is expected to approach the coast of the Yucatan peninsula late Friday.

It's still too early to determine the exact track of the low and whether it will be a named tropical storm.
