Nicole hit Bermuda as a major category 3 hurricane. The satellite image at that time was impressive with the storm’s distinct eye, but now not nearly as organized.
The storm system is now racing away east-northeast at 21 mph, with sustained maximum wind speeds at 85 mph. Weakening is forecasted this weekend.
While the storm is far from land, about 675 miles south-southeast from Nova Scotia, it will increased coastal impacts for us this weekend.
