Re: Nate now a Hurricane, Moving Quickly into the Gulf

Yes it's a bit ahead of schedule, but the NHC has been mentioning in the discussions that rapid intensification could occur for the past 2 days or so, and it looks like it may do so. The waters its over are already extremely hot, the Gulf is actually slightly cooler, but not very much so.

Tomorrow when folks wake up after a tropical storm and seeing a hurricane (possibly cat 2 by then) are going to probably do a double take, and it may be a bit wild along the coast.
