Tropical Storm Nate is currently located 230 miles south-southeast of Cozumel, Mexico over the Caribbean Sea north of Honduras and is expected to move northwest to the Gulf Coast.
Heavy rain continues to fall across parts of Central America with tropical storm force winds reaching 45 mph
Depending on the severity of the storm, cantaloupe and honeydew production in Guatemala may see a seven day delay from the projected start date of November 13
Melon plantings in Honduras typically occur at this time, but conditions may delay start dates from mid-December to mid-January
The storm is projected to strengthen and make landfall along the northern Gulf Coast late Saturday night or early Sunday as a hurricane or tropical storm
