Nate moving across Alabama — FIRST TO ALERT

Hurricane Nate made landfall Saturday in Louisiana near the mouth of the Mississippi River as a Category 1 storm with winds up to 85 m.p.h.

It made its second landfall outside Biloxi, Mississippi, at 12:30am (05:30 GMT) on Sunday as a hurricane with maximum winds of 140km/h.

After several hours of heavy rainfall, the National Hurricane Center downgraded the tropical storm to a tropical depression and has subsequently discontinued all hurricane and storm surge warnings and watches. "NASA's Aqua satellite provided that data and showed strongest storms were in Hurricane Nate's eastern side". Another area of low pressure is forecast to develop in the Mississippi Valley on Monday and sweep northeast later in the day.

According to Gardner, temperatures should drop back down into the 70s by the weekend. In Alabama, there are reported to be 82,000 customers without power.

About 47,000 customers were without power in MS, while more than 1000 people had arrived at shelters, the state Emergency Management Agency said.

Areas inland in Alabama will have to put up with Nate a little longer. However, if weather experts are to be believed, storm surge does remain over the region.

The chance of precipitation in the area for Sunday and Sunday night is 100 percent, and showers are expected through Wednesday night before skies clear up Thursday. Storm surges as high as 11 feet are possible near the Mississippi/Alabama border.

"Nate is at our doorstep or will be soon", New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu said on Saturday.

New Orleans, being located further west, was spared from the worst of the storm.

It's still windy out there, however, with the center of the storm approaching the Birmingham metro area.

About 5,000 people in southern Alabama were without power due to Nate, Alabama Power said.

The storm known as Nate, now upgraded to hurricane status, was intensifying Saturday morning in the central Gulf of Mexico, the National Hurricane Center said. Forecasters called for 3 inches to 6 inches (7 centimeters to 15 cm) with as much as 10 inches (25 cm) in some isolated places.

Conditions should begin to improve late tonight into Monday morning.

Hurricane Nate continues to move quickly to the north/northwest and maintain a strong category 1 hurricane status.

As of the latest advisory, Hurricane Nate has sustained winds of 80 miles per hour and is moving quickly to the NNW at 22 miles per hour. However, after these two landfalls, the system did degrade into a tropical storm.
