Confirming an earlier projection by Accuweather that showed Hurricane Nate will likely make landfall as a cateogry one storm somewhere between Louisiana and the Florida panhandle on Sunday, the NHC has issued a hurricane warning – the highest-priority of the agency’s alert levels – for a broad swath of the Southern US stretching from Grand Isle Louisiana to the Florida-Alabama border.

As we noted earlier, unlike with Hurricane Irma, most of the models for Hurricane Nate consistently see the storm moving directly north through the Gulf before turning to northeast to follow the eastern U.S. shorline.

Here are more details about storm-related warnings from the NHC:

A Hurricane Warning is in effect for…
* Grand Isle Louisiana to the Alabama/Florida border
