As of 11 p.m., Tropical Storm Nate was located around 150 miles west of Campeche, Mexico. Maximum sustained winds with Nate are 45 miles per hour.

Tropical storm force winds extend 105 miles away from the center.

The National Hurricane Center forecasters said the storm is nearly stationary over the bay. Little movement is expected over the next 24 hours, but a slow move to the north is expected by Friday.
