Wednesday Tropical Storm Nicole Update for Tampa Bay
Winds will pick up throughout the day. Here’s the latest analysis of this morning’s data from Denis Phillips, Greg Dee and other weather experts as Nicole approaches Florida today.
This will be no Ian...
Here's the latest update on Nicole. Forecast and track haven't changed much. Strong tropical storm or minimal cat 1 hurricane at landfall on the east coast tomorrow. It'll be a tropical storm as it moves through our region. pic.twitter.com/JtjjETp6Fk
Nicole will have a huge wind field that will impact many hundreds of miles away from where the center comes ashore. Take a look at the movement of the tropical storm winds (yellow) over the next 36 hours. #flwxpic.twitter.com/Mynn1LWlZ3
Winds will generally be in the 40-50 mph range across our region but gusts over 60 mph are possible. These gusts will mainly produce tree damage and power outages. #flwx#Nicolepic.twitter.com/Wvu2DPoDKt
Nicole's strongest winds will move through the area overnight and Thursday morning. Most will gust 45-55 mph with isolated gusts over 60 mph. The storm will be done by tomorrow afternoon in terms of the strongest wind. #flwx#Nicolepic.twitter.com/7cFW14olds
It is really wrong for the national media to tease "another hurricane coming to Florida" while showing video of massive Ian damage. That just scares people already tramatized from Ian. Nicole is no Ian... not even close!
Talk about a weather pattern change!! Once we get #Nicole out of the way, cold air will pour south out of Canada. I don't ever recall the entire Lower 48 in blue for below normal temps in the 6 to 10 day outlook. 🥶 pic.twitter.com/T5K88bxeJe
