Tropical Storm Nicole Path: Where Is It Now?

Although Hurricane Matthew has abated into a “post tropical cyclone,” as termed by meteorologists, Tropical Storm Nicole is gradually gaining momentum and catching the attention of forecasters.

Matthew had been carried off away from the Northeast coast as of Monday. It will keep moving out to sea to just off the Canadian Maritimes. The rainfall accompanying Matthew is expected to end by Monday.

“Swells associated with Nicole and Post-Tropical Cyclone Matthew should increase on Bermuda during the next couple of days,” the National Hurricane Center said. “These swells will create dangerous surf conditions and rip currents.”

Forecasters anticipate the tropical storm could intensify into a Category 2 hurricane in Bermuda by the end of the week. However, the storm does not pose any threat to the United States.
