Tropical storm Nicole is expected to strengthen into a Category-1 hurricane on Wednesday and hit Florida's east coast early Thursday. Hurricane conditions are expected to impact the coast of southeast and east-central Florida beginning late Wednesday.
As of 10 am ET this morning, Nicole officially transformed from a subtropical cyclone into a tropical storm. As of Tuesday evening, due to model uncertainty, meteorologists predict that the storm could make landfall anywhere along the coast of eastern Florida, from Cape Canaveral to Miami.
“Nicole is expected to weaken as it moves inland over Florida and head northeastward over the southeastern United States, where it could bring heavy rain to Georgia and South Carolina,” says Currently’s Chief Meteorologist, Megan Montero.
The storm is expected to reduce to an extra tropical cyclone, and dissipate, by the weekend.
