Tropical depression forms off Atlantic coast of Central America

Airbnb has extended its disaster response program for hurricane evacuees in Florida until Oct. 16

Dennis Feltgen, spokesman for the National Hurricane Center, noted that the storm's forecast is a "low-confidence prediction".

In the next 48 hours, Nate is expected to increase in speed and gain strength as it moves north-northwest and dumps 15-20 inches of rain on Nicaragua.

As of Wednesday night, the system is located about 200 miles East of the border between Nicaragua and Honduras.

A Tropical Storm Warning is in effect for...

The depression, which is now churning 45 miles west-southwest of San Andres island, is expected to become a tropical storm later Wednesday, according to the National Hurrican Center.

The National Weather Service in Tallahassee also stated there is potential for strong winds and storm surge with this system however it is too early for precise impacts.

This quiet stretch follows three Category 4 hurricane landfalls in the U.S.: Harvey in Texas, Irma in Florida and Maria in Puerto Rico.

But the core, which contains the probable path of the eye of the storm, shows that Nate could hit anywhere between Louisiana and the Florida Panhandle. The storm is expected to be a hurricane when it nears land Sunday morning.

"Strengthening is likely over the northwestern Caribbean Sea Thursday night and Friday", the NHC wrote.

One disturbance near Florida is not expected to develop further, but it will cause heavy rain the next few days there.

Nate will then brush past the southern Gulf of Mexico by Saturday after narrowly avoiding the Yucatan Peninsula and western Cuba.

System is expected to quickly strengthen into a tropical storm.
