Tropical Storm Nicole

Tropical Depression Sixteen has been upgraded to Tropical Storm Nicole as of the 11am Advisory. Although there has been an increase in the convection with bands of thunderstorms that are closer to the center of circulation in the southeastern quadrant, Nicole is not that organized. All warnings and watches for Florida have been discontinued. As it was discussed yesterday, all the strongest winds and convection are east of the center of circulation. Nicole is forecast to become extratropical within 24 hours and head northeastward along the U.S. East coast. Heavy rains will be the dominant event over Cuba, and also in the mountainous areas of Jamaica. Florida will continue to get some rain, but most of the rain will be offshore.

Models for Tropical Storm Nicole

There are a few models that are forecasting a new system will develop in the western Caribbean, but there is no genesis for this at this time.
