Friday: Impacts from what is now Subtropical Storm Nicole. More below.
 

Subtropical Storm Nicole:

Nicole is a Subtropical Storm which is a hybrid between tropical and non-tropical storm. Subtropical storms have a cold core vs a warm core. They also typically have fronts associated with them and very broad wind fields.
– Nicole is forecast to strengthen Tuesday night and Wednesday
– Hurricane Warnings have been issued for portions of the northwestern Bahamas.
– Hurricane Watches have been issued for a portion of Florida’s east coast.
– Dangerous storm surge possible across the Bahamas, the east coast of Florida and Georgia.
Local Impacts as of Monday afternoon:
– Timing: Due to a tight pressure gradient, it will be breezy for the remainder of the week. Showers could start on Thursday PM, but rain coverage will increase on Friday.
– Rain: 1-3 inches
A cold front will cross the eastern United States and pick up Nicole allowing the storm to race to the northeast.
We WILL need to finetune exact impacts. Impacts for us all depend on the final track.
