At 11 a.m., Tropical Storm Nate was 175 miles southeast of the Mexican resort island of Cozumel.

The potential for rainfall ranges as high as 8 inches along and west of I-65 through Sunday.

A hurricane warning was in effect from metropolitan New Orleans and Lake Pontchartrain, La., as well as Grand Isle, La., to the Alabama-Florida border. The coastlines of Mississippi and Alabama are prone to storm surge flooding.

CEMA Director Jay Jones held a briefing on Friday at the Emergency Operation Center with the National Weather Service, county and city officials, public works employees and first responders.

Maximum sustained winds have increased to 75 mph with gusts in excess of 85 mph.

For those planning on purchasing supplies at Walmart, time is running out. At this time, that is not expected. Residents in several coastal parishes have been ordered to evacuate, and polling stations for early voting sites in some areas are closing ahead of schedule. "Rainfall totals around 0.5" to 1.5".

"Additional strengthening is forecast during the next 36 hours, and Nate is expected to become a hurricane by the time it reaches the northern Gulf of Mexico", the advisory said.

"This is a fast-moving storm and we must begin preparing now".

Forecasters said the tropical storm should keep moving to the north-northwest quickly through late Saturday.

In the U.S., storm surge, dangerous waves and flooding are the biggest risks for the low-lying oceanfront areas. Rain will remain scattered throughout Saturday evening and Sunday morning.

The countdown to landfall is on.

Nate will stay far away from SWFL but we will see some added moisture and choppy water conditions from the storm. Saturday: "Hurricane Nate" approaches with increasing winds and rain with damaging winds.

Monday. Mostly cloudy. Rain possible. Highs in the mid-to-upper 80s.

Friday. Partly cloudy. Slight rain chance.

A tropical storm that's already killed over 20 people in Central America has its path set on New Orleans.
