Tropical Storm Nate is now active in the western Caribbean. Nate is not a big boy with winds of ‘only’ 45 mph.

With that said, Nate is forecast to gain strength and attain minimal hurricane power before it makes landfall at or near the mouth of the Mississippi River late Saturday night.

We expect the center of circulation to travel north arriving in Cullman County Sunday and Sunday night.

Ongoing severe thunderstorms are not likely with Nate, but substantial rainfall is. We will see evidence of Nate by noon Saturday with the bulk of the precipitation coming Saturday night into Sunday.

Rain amounts will vary greatly based upon your location luck-of-the-draw. Up to 3 inches is possible. Isolated geographies could see up to 5 inches in heavy downpours.

Nate will speed by, so major flooding seems unlikely at this point.

Winds? This storm seems unlikely to produce any significant tree or power line damage at this point, but such issues are possible nonetheless.

The threat of tornados in Cullman County as a result of the Nate-related activity is low, but not out of the question.

Friday night high school football games should be UNAFFECTED.

Bass Fest at Smith Lake Park should be fine although some light rain after the 3 pm weigh-in time could happen.

Random rain showers will likely continue Monday with only widely scattered showers Tuesday.
