Maximum sustained winds are near 40 mph with higher gusts. Little change in strength is expected today as the center of Nate moves across northeastern Nicaragua and eastern Honduras. Strengthening is likely over northwestern Caribbean Sea tonight and Friday. Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 60 miles mainly over water to the east of the center.
