Here is the latest update on Nicole from the National Weather Service:
At 700 AM EST (1200 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Nicole was about 60 miles (100 km) east-northeast of Great Abaco Island. Nicole is moving toward the west-southwest near 13 mph (20 km/h). A turn toward the west is expected today, followed by a turn toward the northwest on Thursday, and north or north-northeast on Friday. On the forecast track, the center of Nicole will approach the
northwestern Bahamas this morning, move near or over those islands by midday, and approach the east coast of Florida within the hurricane warning area tonight. Nicole’s center is then expected to move across central and northern Florida into southern Georgia Thursday and Thursday night, and then across the Carolinas Friday and Friday night. Maximum sustained winds are near 70 mph (110 km/h) with higher gusts. Some strengthening is expected today, and Nicole is forecast to become a hurricane near the northwestern Bahamas and remain a hurricane when it reaches the east coast of Florida tonight. Nicole is expected to weaken while moving across Florida and the southeastern United States Thursday through Friday, and it is likely to become a post-tropical cyclone by Friday night over the Mid-Atlantic states.
Nicole is a large tropical storm. Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 460 miles (740 km), especially to the north of the center. During the past few hours, a National Ocean Service station at the Lake Worth Pier, Florida, reported sustained winds of 44 mph (71 km/h) and a wind gust of 55 mph (89 km/h).
