Hurricane Nicole 100 MPH Warnings Bermuda
Even on this wide satellite view, Hurricane Nicole has a signature look and a very large eye. Nicole is aiming right for Bermuda and weather models are in agreement that Nicole will move either very close to or right over the Island Thursday morning. Conditions favor further strengthening and Nicole could be a major hurricane when it reaches Bermuda.

Local Weather Conditions
Other than some patchy clouds that are moving through from time to time this afternoon, our weather remains dry with partly sunny skies. Temperatures are in the 60s. Tonight with clouds around we will see lows in the upper 40s to mid 50. Thursday looks partly sunny but there could be a few late day widely scatttered showers mainly in areas north of New York City.
You can see on the GFS model that the showers are limited with the weather front. You can also see how the model takes Nicole right over Bermuda. High pressure will be building in for Friday and the weekend with sunshine all three days and temperatures a bit on the cool side. Highs will only be in the low to mid 60s each day with Saturday being the coolest day. No rain is forecast until late Monday as another weather front approaches.
