Subtropical Storm Nicole is set to make landfall in Florida late Wednesday and bring the DMV rain for the end of the week and weekend.
WASHINGTON — There are just over three weeks left in the Atlantic Hurricane Season and the tropics aren’t letting up quite yet. We are tracking Subtropical Storm Nicole, which is set to continue to track west-northwest and bring hurricane conditions to portions of the northwestern Bahamas and the Florida Atlantic coast beginning Wednesday.
The National Hurricane Center currently has the storm making landfall just to the south of Port St. Lucie, but keep in mind, landfall can occur anywhere within the cone of uncertainty. This is also a very large storm, so impacts will be felt far beyond the forecasted track.
If you have loved ones or property interest in Florida or the southeast United States, now is the time to check in and make sure safety precautions are being taken.
Hurricane Warnings have been issued for portions of the Bahamas. Hurricane Watches and Tropical Storm Warnings and Watches have been hoisted for parts of the Bahamas, the Florida Atlantic coast and parts of Georgia and South Carolina.
While the center of the storm is still forecast to be over Florida on Friday, the storm is so large and far reaching that we’re set to start seeing tropical moisture by Friday afternoon across the DMV.
Once the rain starts, it is not forecast to stop until Saturday afternoon.
Plan ahead now for waves of rain, locally heavy at times.
By Saturday afternoon, most of the rain should be southeast of D.C. and the rest of the weekend looks just fine.
Our computer models are still in pretty significant disagreement in terms of where the center of the storm will track.
Both storm tracks would ultimately bring in significant rainfall to the DMV Friday – Saturday.
