5pm Saturday Update on Hurricane Nicole

Here is the latest update on hurricane Nicole... in the deep north Atlantic ocean.

Hurricane Nicole is moving east-northeast over the open waters of the North Atlantic Ocean.

At 5pm… the center of Nicole is around 535 miles south-southeast of Cape Race in Newfoundland. Maximum sustained winds are around 85 mph… making it a category 1 hurricane.

There are no watches or warnings in effect for land areas…. and the storm is only a threat to marine interests.

Nicole is expected to continue the east-northeast motion with a decrease in forward motion tonight and Sunday… followed by a turn to the northeast Monday.

Little change in strength is expected tonight… followed by gradual weakening Sunday into Monday.
