Tropical Depression 16 approaching coast of Nicaragua

8 a.m. Thursday update: Tropical Depression 16 is now Tropical Storm Nate near the coast of Nicaragua and is now moving at 8 miles per hour with winds of 40 miles per hour.

Meanwhile, a trough of low pressure located over Cuba and near the northwestern Bahamas is producing a large area of disorganized showers and gusty winds.

Forecasters said the depression could strengthen to a tropical storm before it moves inland over northeastern Nicaragua Thursday. A north-northwestward motion at a faster forward speed is forecast to begin on Thursday and continue through late Friday.

Harrisburg dodged two hurricanes, but it won't elude Tropical Storm Nate, forecasts say.

The depression, if upgraded to a storm, would be named Nate.

BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA- Tropical Depression 16 remains unamed as of the 11 p.m. Residents along the coast from Louisiana to the Florida Panhandle are advised to monitor the storm.

Nate is now bringing heavy rainfall to Nicaragua and Honduras, as it scrapes along their coasts on a northwest track toward Cancun.

The models differ starting on Sunday - the GFS keeps the system a little weaker and predicts a Sunday morning landfall along the Louisiana coastline. It's still too soon to know the exact location at which the storm will make landfall, but the current cone of uncertainty takes the storm near Panama City, Florida.

We're watching another disturbance that could potentially bring more rain to Georgia late this weekend and into next week. "The forecast looks better fo us right now than it did [Wednesday]".
