In the Tropics
Subtropical Storm Nicole has set its sights on Florida. This storm doesn’t have all the tropical characteristics, but it is very similar to a tropical storm. It is expected to bring heavy rain and strong winds to much of Florida, but it will be deflected to the east by a cold front. It will not hit Louisiana.

There is an additional disturbance in the Atlantic that is not a threat to the United States.
Central Subtropical Atlantic: A well-defined area of low pressure located about 650 miles east of Bermuda continues to produce gale-force winds, but the associated shower and thunderstorm activity is displaced to the east of the low's center due to strong upper-level winds. Upper-level winds are expected to remain unfavorable for development while the system moves northward and then northeastward at about 10 mph, but a short-lived tropical storm could still form later today or on Tuesday before the low dissipates and merges with a cold front. Additional information on this system, including gale warnings, can be found in High Seas Forecasts issued by the National Weather Service.
