    DISCUSSION AND 48-HOUR OUTLOOK
    ------------------------------
    At 1000 AM CDT (1500 UTC), the center of Tropical Depression Nate
    was located near latitude 33.1 North, longitude 87.3 West. The
    depression is moving toward the north-northeast near 24 mph (39
    km/h). A turn toward the northeast with an increase in forward
    speed is expected during the next couple of days. On the forecast
    track, Nate's center will continue to move inland across the Deep
    South, Tennessee Valley, and central Appalachian Mountains through
    Monday.

    Surface observations indicate that the maximum sustained winds have
    decreased to near 35 mph (55 km/h) with higher gusts. Little change
    in strength is predicted during the next couple of days, but Nate
    is forecast to become post-tropical on Monday or Tuesday.

    The estimated minimum central pressure is 996 mb (29.42 inches).


    HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
    ----------------------
    WIND: Tropical-storm-force wind gusts are expected over the
    the Florida Panhandle, and portions of Alabama and Georgia through
    this afternoon.

    STORM SURGE: Water levels remain elevated along portions of the
    northern Gulf coast, but should gradually subside this afternoon.

    RAINFALL: Nate is expected to produce the following rain
    accumulations through Monday:

    East of the Mississippi River from the central Gulf Coast into the
    Deep South, eastern Tennessee Valley, and southern Appalachians:
    3 to 6 inches, max 10 inches.

    Across the Ohio Valley into the central Appalachians:
    2 to 5 inches, max 7 inches.

    TORNADOES: A couple tornadoes will be possible today, mainly from
    the Florida Panhandle and eastern Alabama across western and
    northern Georgia into the western Carolinas.

    SURF: Swells generated by Nate will affect land areas around the
    Gulf of Mexico through this evening. These swells are likely
    to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions. Please
    consult products from your local weather office.
