Hurricane Nadine
Hurricane Nadine has slightly strengthened some more after becoming a hurricane again yesterday, now winds have increased a notch to 80 MPH. It could peak as a high end CAT I tonight/tomorrow before hitting cooler waters and thus weakening. There is no immediate threat to land, though Azores Islands may get affected by some increased rain and wind late into next week by the time Nadine is forecast to be weak and extra-tropical. Still it's a very long lived, likely record-breaking hurricane, as it is has been active for 18 full days (take away one day in which it briefly was extra-tropical).

TD Norman
Tropical Storm Norman weakened into a depression late yesterday and dissipated just as it started to make landfall along the Pacific Coast of Mexico earlier today. Still flooding from repeated heavy rainfall already caused some significant issues across areas such as Colima, Jalisco and more. 5 fishermen remain missing but have not been confirmed dead or alive as of yet.

Gulf Coast Rainfall/Flooding Event
A non-tropical low, mixed in with moisture from former Hurricane Miriam & TS Norman, has helped spark majorly heavy rainfall across Texas in the past couple of days which in turn triggered locally major flash flooding with countless water rescues and a few evacuations. This threat is shifting more to the east and should effect Louisiana & Mississippi (it's starting to do so already). Even Southern Florida Peninsula may see a period of heavy rainfall/localized flooding on Monday and Tuesday.
