MIAMI (CBSMiami) — The National Hurricane Center is now tracking Tropical Storm Nicole as it moves northward in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean.

At 11 p.m. the center of the storm was about 545 miles south of Bermuda.

Nicole is moving toward the north near 2 mph (4 km/h) and this motion is expected to continue tonight. A turn toward the north-northwest is expected on Monday, and a turn toward the northwest is expected by Tuesday.

Maximum sustained winds are near 65 mph (100 km/h) with higher gusts. Little change in strength is likely tonight. Gradual strengthening is forecast to begin on Monday, and Nicole could become a hurricane by Monday night.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 185 miles (295 km) from the center.


Swells associated with Nicole and Post-Tropical Cyclone Matthew should increase on Bermuda during the next couple of days.

These swells will create dangerous surf conditions and rip currents.
