Advisory issued for central Florida as subtropical storm Nicole approaches

Subtropical Storm Nicole formed near the Bahamas on Monday morning. According to the National Hurricane Center, prolonged, dangerous weather is expected this week for the northwestern Bahamas of Florida and the southeastern coast of the United States. As of 9 p.m., the storm was about 435 miles east of the northwest Bahamas with maximum sustained winds of 45 miles per hour. Nicole was moving northwest at nine miles per hour. Subtropical Storm Nicole: Up-to-date maps, models and routes Tropical Storm Advisories have been published for parts of Central Florida, including Osceola, Orange, Seminole, Lake, Volusia, and Flagler counties. A hurricane advisory has been issued for Brevard County. WESH 2 meteorologists expect it to intensify over the next few days as Nicole works towards Florida. It is expected to be a CAT 1 Hurricane (75 mph winds) by Wednesday evening. South Florida is expected to land late Wednesday/early Thursday, but impacts will begin in central Florida on Wednesday. Nicole is expected to move across the peninsula on Thursday and then make a second landing in Florida on Friday. The GFS model is slightly slower and stronger with a second landing compared to the Euro. GFS also favors Big-Bend regional landings, which will have more of an impact on Central Florida. What we still have to fine-tune is where Nicole will land a second time and how long it will take to get out of the state. For now, an impact is expected on Wednesday-Friday. This timeline may need to be adjusted as new data comes in. Beach erosion and coastal flooding will be greatly affected by Nicole. Inland areas are expected to experience strong winds and even rain. There is currently a low-level severe weather threat on Wednesday (Central and Eastern regions). Some floods may also occur. Concerns are growing about a fairly important event at the beach. After Hurricane Ian, many sand dunes were flooded and breakwaters were badly damaged. A hurricane warning is in effect for:* The Northwest Bahamas, including Abacos, Berry Islands, Bimini and Grand Bahama Island. Tropical storm warnings are in effect for:* Andros Island, New Providence and Eleuthera. Hurricane advisories are in effect for the following locations:* From the Florida East Coast to the Volusia/Brvard County Line to Hallandale Beach* Lake OkeechobeeA Storm Surge Watch is in effect:* Sound heading to Altamaha Hallandale Beach* A Tropical Storm Advisory is in effect for:* Volusia/Brvard County Line South to Altamaha Sound* Ocean Reef North to Hallandale Beach Tropical Storm Advisory means a condition of a tropical storm, usually monitored within 48 hours Available within the area. Advisories are normally issued 48 hours before the first occurrence of the expected tropical storm winds and are conditions that make external preparations difficult or dangerous. Interest in the central Bahamas of Florida and the southeastern coast of the United States is Nicole. You will need an additional watch later today. RELATED: Tropical disturbances bring harsh weather to hurricane-affected Florida’s central coast Officials in Volusia County issued a warning Thursday that storms could threaten the coastline. Residents of the coast said they should keep an eye on the chaos and begin preparing immediately. County officials there said potential storm impacts include strong rip currents, high waves, and breaking waves up to 12 feet long. Emergency Management Director Jim Judge said, “This new system is heading for us because the coast has already been so damaged and eroded by Hurricane Ian. With more erosion, it seriously threatens its assets.” Volusia County officials also said residents and visitors I’m urging people not to go to the beach from this weekend until the beginning of next week.
