For a depiction of areas at risk, please see the National Weather Service Storm Surge Watch/Warning Graphic, available at hurricanes.gov.  This is a life-threatening situation.

For storm information specific to your area, including possible inland watches and warnings, please monitor products issued by your local National Weather Service forecast office.
 DISCUSSION AND 48-HOUR OUTLOOK ------------------------------ At 400 AM CDT (0900 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Nate was located near latitude 31.5 North, longitude 88.4 West. Nate is moving toward the north-northeast near 23 mph (37 km/h). A turn toward the northeast with an increase in forward speed is expected during the next couple of days.  On the forecast track, Nate's center will continue to move inland across the Deep South, Tennessee Valley, and central Appalachian Mountains through Monday.
Maximum sustained winds are near 70 mph (110 km/h) with higher gusts.  Nate is expected to continue to quickly weaken as it moves farther inland. It should degenerate into a remnant low late Monday.
Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 90 miles (150 km) from the center. Mobile airport recently reported a wind gust of 54 mph (87 km/h).
The estimated minimum central pressure is 986 mb (29.12 inches).
 HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND ---------------------- WIND:  Tropical storm conditions are expected to continue in the tropical storm warning area for the next several hours.
STORM SURGE: The combination of a dangerous storm surge and the tide will cause normally dry areas near the coast to be flooded by rising waters moving inland from the shoreline.  The water is expected to reach the following heights above ground if the peak surge occurs at the time of high tide...
Mouth of the Pearl River to the Alabama/Florida border, including Mobile Bay...5 to 8 ft North of Pointe a la Hache to the mouth of the Pearl River...4 to 6 ft. Alabama/Florida border to the Okaloosa/Walton County Line...3 to 5 ft Morgan City, Louisiana to Pointe a la Hache...1 to 3 ft Okaloosa/Walton County Line to Indian Pass, Florida...2 to 3 ft Indian Pass to Crystal River, Florida...1 to 3 ft
The deepest water will occur along the immediate coast near and to the east of the landfall location, where the surge will be accompanied by large and destructive waves.  Surge-related flooding depends on the relative timing of the surge and the tidal cycle, and can vary greatly over short distances.  For information specific to your area, please see products issued by your local National Weather Service forecast office.
RAINFALL:  Nate is expected to produce the following rain accumulations through Monday:
East of the Mississippi River from the central Gulf Coast into the Deep South, eastern Tennessee Valley, and southern Appalachians: 3 to 6 inches, max 10 inches.
Across the Ohio Valley into the central Appalachians: 2 to 5 inches, max 7 inches.
TORNADOES:  Isolated tornadoes are possible today, mainly from the Florida Panhandle and eastern Alabama across western and northern Georgia.
SURF:  Swells generated by Nate will affect land areas around the Gulf of Mexico through this evening.  These swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions. Please consult products from your local weather office.
 NEXT ADVISORY ------------- Next intermediate advisory at 700 AM CDT. Next complete advisory at 1000 AM CDT.
