Tropical Storm Nicole is still expected to strengthen to hurricane strength as it approaches the east coast of Florida late Wednesday night and Thursday morning. Nicole is forecasted to remain a tropical storm as it moves across the southeast U.S. Thursday night and Friday. The risk for coastal flooding, winds to tropical storm force over the coastal waters, gusty winds along the coastal counties and Lake Moultrie, high surf and heavy rainfall increases as the storm approaches.

NOTE: Nicole will be a large storm, and impacts will be felt well away from its center.
