Future Nicole to Pose Tropical Trouble for the Southeast This Week

As sunny days were seemingly yesterday, they have been taken over by soggy rainy days with low clouds. The good news is is that the rain is starting to clear out this Sunday afternoon. There could be leftover showers but it looks like our next rainmaker is below.

But we have bigger things on the agenda, one of those being future Tropical Storm or Hurricane Nicole.

Florida will take the brunt of the storm this week, perhaps around Wednesday or Thursday. Then on Friday and Saturday this system moves our way, and could pose more threats along the coast and inland.

Tornadoes cannot be ruled out, especially with landfalling tropical systems. Flooding, damaging wind gusts, and power outages are all a possibility, but we are not sure yet. But indications point towards the eastern Carolinas.

This is rare for a strong November storm this late in the season. The official hurricane season runs until November 30th.
