As of Early Friday, Nate remains a tropical storm, but it could reach land as a Category 1 hurricane. The Storm has moved across parts of Mexico and the National Hurricane Center says it is now "heading for the northwestern Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico in a hurry." The Storm has maximum sustained winds of 45 mph, but is expected to grow stronger over the next few days.
