Tropical Update: Nate now down to a tropical depression

By  | 


Tropical Depression Nate
Moving: North-Northeast 23 mph
Winds: 35 mph
Location: 35.0N; 86.5W

What was once hurricane Nate is now tropical depression Nate as sustained winds around the center of the system have dropped substantially. Sunday morning, winds around the central low were at 70 mph and as of Sunday evening, they had fallen to 35 mph. The storm, now removed from the warm waters of the Gulf, will continue weaken as it continues its path over the Mississippi River Valley. The Hurricane Center is no longer tracking the storm.

Eastern Carolina impacts will be limited to a slight increase in rain chances Monday and Tuesday as the main portion of Nate stays west and then north of our area.
