Storm Nate could swirl into Gulf of Mexico as hurricane - NHC

(Reuters) - Tropical Storm Nate is about to move offshore of the eastern coast of Honduras and is likely to strengthen into a hurricane by the time it reaches the central Gulf of Mexico, the U.S. National Hurricane Center (NHC) said on Thursday.

The storm, about 355 miles (570 km) south-southeast of Cozumel, Mexico, with maximum sustained winds of 40 miles per hour (65 km/h) at present, has prompted storm surge watches for a portion of the U.S. Gulf coast, the Miami-based NHC said.
