Subtropical Storm Nicole Calls for Hurricane Alerts on Florida’s East Coast | weather channel

Subtropical storm Nicole formed in the east of the Bahamas early Monday. The storm will head the Bahamas and the southeastern coast of the United States this week. Nicole can be a strong tropical storm or hurricane intensity as it approaches Florida. The Tropical Storm Watch was issued in Florida. Strong winds, heavy rain, high waves, rip currents and coastal flooding are expected along the southeastern coast. Subtropical Storm Nicole causes hurricanes, tropical storms and storm surges, warning for prolonged periods of coastal flooding, beach erosion, strong winds and high waves , rip currents and heavy rains are expected in Florida and parts of the southeast this week. Nicole became the 14th storm of the Atlantic season early Monday morning and was concentrated hundreds of miles east of the Bahamas. The storm is now classified as subtropical. , that is, a hybrid system with characteristics of both tropical and non-tropical storms. Nicole is expected to turn into a full tropical storm within the next day or so. It is also located in Lake Okeechobee and in the Northwest Bahamas, including Nassau and Freeport. Tropical Storm Advisories extend south to Miami-Dade County and north of the Space Coast to Daytona Beach and St. It extends to Glynn County, Georgia, including Simons Island. Broward County, Florida. This watch means that each condition is possible within 48 hours. That area can be upgraded with a warning. The forecast track, IntensityNicole, is now heading west and will continue its usual west route towards the Bahamas and Florida until midweek. Nicole is expected to be a Category 1 hurricane near the Northwest Bahamas. The landing at the Nicole Center is expected to land on Florida’s east coast early Thursday, but the impact will arrive long enough before that. Nicole will be absorbed by a cold front that curves north near or above Florida and turns the storm northeast in the southeastern state. or adjacent coastal waters later this week. Current status, forecast path (red shaded areas indicate potential paths for tropical cyclones centers, especially heavy rain, high waves, coastal floods, winds) Tropical cyclones generally spread beyond the forecast path It’s possible. Storm surge, coastal flooding, beach erosion Coastal winds that persist far ahead of Nicole’s center will lead to coastal flooding along parts of the southeastern coast from Florida to Carolina starting Tuesday. These coastal floods will increase and peak daily at high tide storms as Nicole’s center approaches early Thursday morning. The maximum storm surge forecast for the National Hurricane Center is as follows when it occurs at high tide. Major beach erosion and infrastructure damage are expected along the east coast of Florida and parts of the coast of Georgia, given coastal flooding from multiple high-tidal cycles and smashing waves swept through storm surges. This is especially true of the east coast of Florida, which was hit by Hurricane Ian in late September, according to the NWS office in Melbourne, Florida. Some moderate to major coastal flooding may occur as far north as Carolina, including Charleston in South Carolina and Tyby Island in Georgia. (The NHC forecasts a storm surge peak in case of a tidal wave at high tide.) Winds Already on the southeast coast, strong winds are increasing due to the pressure difference between Nicole and the building of the strong high pressure system towards the eastern state. Tropical Storm – Winds can reach the northwest Bahamas from Tuesday night through early Wednesday, and as early as Wednesday on the east coast of Florida. In the event of a hurricane condition, it could reach eastern Florida by Wednesday night. Winds of this magnitude can knock down trees and cut power. (This map shows the time and potential aerial extent of tropical storm winds. Some areas may experience hurricane-like winds, but the onset of tropical storm winds will make storm preparation more difficult.) Rainfall Some bands are locally While heavy, it can rain along the Florida coast from Tuesday, with the heaviest rain expected in Florida from Wednesday, spreading along Eastern Georgia and the Carolina region from Thursday through Saturday. The heaviest total rainfall is expected in northeast Florida, including some areas flooded by rain from Hurricane Ian. Part of the St. John’s River is still above the flood stage due to rain from Ian about six weeks ago. From parts of southern Florida to the Carolina, at least an inch or two of rain can fall. This can lead to flash floods and flooding of some rivers. Precipitation Outlook (This should be interpreted as a broad view of the areas that are likely to receive the most rain. If thunderstorm bands or clusters stagnate for hours, higher volumes may occur.) Double check for important information. update.
