4 p.m. Friday: Nate Stronger, No Change To Official Track

The National Hurricane Center says Tropical Storm Nate's maximum winds have increased to 60 miles per hour as of the 4 p.m. Friday update.

Despite models suggesting the possibility of the NHC's official track being nudged back to the west after shifting to the east, there was no real change to the "cone of uncertainty".

With the storm still moving quickly north-northwest at 21 miles per hour, landfall is still expected late Saturday night with most of the strongest effects felt overnight.
