While it is beautiful in Destin today, we are currently monitoring Tropical Storm Nate. Current models from the National Weather Service show the storm reaching the Gulf Coast on Sunday, Oct. 8. The cone of uncertainty currently shows the storm’s path as making landfall between Louisiana and Mississippi on Sunday. This is a fast moving storm, which will be inland on Monday, and Destin will be back to sunny skies by Tuesday.
