products issued by your national meteorological service.


DISCUSSION AND 48-HOUR OUTLOOK
------------------------------
At 200 PM EDT (1800 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Nate was
located inland over northeastern Nicaragua near latitude 14.5 North,
longitude 84.0 West. Nate is moving toward the northwest near 9 mph
(15 km/h). A turn toward the north-northwest at a faster forward
speed is expected this afternoon or tonight, with that motion
continuing through Friday night. On the forecast track, the center
of Nate should move across northeastern Nicaragua and eastern
Honduras this afternoon and then over the northwestern Caribbean Sea
tonight and Friday. The center is expected to approach the coast of
the Yucatan Peninsula late Friday.

Maximum sustained winds are near 40 mph (65 km/h) with higher
gusts. Little change in strength is expected today while the center
is over land. Strengthening is likely once the center moves over
the northwestern Caribbean Sea tonight and Friday.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 50 miles (80 km)
mainly over water to the east of the center.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 1001 mb (29.56 inches).


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
RAINFALL: Nate is expected to produce the following rain
accumulations through Friday night:

Nicaragua...15 to 20 inches, isolated 30 inches
Costa Rica and Panama...5 to 10 inches, isolated 20 inches
Honduras and Eastern portions of the Yucatan Peninsula...4 to 8
inches, isolated 12 inches
Belize...2 to 5 inches, isolated 8 inches

Heavy rainfall will occur over a wide area, including locations well
away from the center along the Pacific coast of Central America.
Rainfall across all of these areas may produce life-threatening
flash floods and mudslides.

WIND: Tropical storm conditions are expected within portions of the
warning area in Nicaragua and Honduras today and tonight. Hurricane
conditions are possible within the hurricane watch area in Mexico
Friday night, with tropical storm conditions expected by late
Friday.

SURF: Swells generated by Nate are affecting portions of the coast
of Nicaragua, and will begin to affect other land areas around the
northwestern Caribbean during the next day or two. These swells are
likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions.
Please consult products from your local weather office.
