MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - As of Sunday evening, Nate has been downgraded to a tropical depression near Huntsville, Alabama, with wind speeds of 35 mph.

The latest round of forecast models and the updated forecast tracks keep the weakening remnants of Nate well west of our region as they pass through Mississippi, Alabama and Tennessee and the western Carolinas. Those areas would be the focus of heavy rain and gusty winds. 

Rain totals from western North and South Carolina through the mountains of Tennessee and north Georgia could reach 3 to 6 inches with as much as 10 inches in some isolated areas. Thankfully Nate is moving very quickly, so unlike Harvey, the flooding threat is not as high, though flash flooding is still very likely. 

Based on the current forecast track, minimal impacts are expected here, but we will see a dramatic increase in humidity and the risk of some passing showers at times through the middle of next week.

Stay up to date with the latest on Nate by downloading the WMBF First Alert Weather App. There you will find video updates from our team as well as have the tropical tracker feature to stay ahead of the storm.
