Tropical Depression #16 formed Wednesday in the Caribbean. It is forecast to emerge into the Gulf of Mexico as Tropical Storm Nate by early this weekend.

The storm made landfall in Nicaragua and shifted the storm west. It is now forecast to make landfall near Mississippi and Louisiana.

Sunday we are expecting breezy conditions with showers and thunderstorms and an isolated Tornado risk. A Tropical Storm Force gust will be possible for the northwestern counties
