Hurricane Warnings Bermuda Nicole 90 MPH
Hurricane Warnings Bermuda Nicole 90 MPH
Judging from the satellite loop Hurricane Nicole continues to strengthen as the eye has once again reappeared and there appears to be a burst of convection going on near the eye. There has been no reconnaissance aircraft there since this afternoon. The advisory is carrying 90 mph but I suspect that this may be conservative. Nicole still has favorable conditions for another 24 hours or so and could still become a major hurricane as it approaches Bermuda Wednesday night.

DISCUSSION AND 48-HOUR OUTLOOK ------------------------------ At 1100 PM AST (0300 UTC), the eye of Hurricane Nicole was located near latitude 27.3 North, longitude 66.6 West. Nicole is drifting toward the west near 2 mph (4 km/h). A faster motion toward the northwest and north-northwest is expected overnight, followed by a turn toward the north and an increase in forward speed by late Wednesday. A further increase in forward speed and a turn toward the north-northeast is forecast on Thursday. On the forecast track, the center of Nicole will approach Bermuda Wednesday night and pass near Bermuda on Thursday. Maximum sustained winds have increased to near 90 mph (150 km/h) with higher gusts. Some strengthening is forecast during the next 48 hours, and Nicole could be near major hurricane strength by late Wednesday. Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 30 miles (45 km) from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 115 miles (185 km). The estimated minimum central pressure is 970 mb (28.65 inches). HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND ---------------------- WIND: Hurricane conditions are expected to begin on Bermuda Thursday morning, with tropical storm conditions expected to begin by Wednesday evening. STORM SURGE: A dangerous storm surge is expected to produce coastal flooding in Bermuda. Near the coast, the surge will be accompanied by large and destructive waves. RAINFALL: Nicole is expected to produce total rain accumulations of 3 to 5 inches over Bermuda through Thursday. SURF: Swells associated with Nicole will affect Bermuda during the next few days. These swells will create dangerous surf conditions and rip currents. Please refer to products being issued by the Bermuda Weather Service.
