MIAMI (CBSMiami) — Hurricane Nicole continues to produce a large area of high seas as it moves slowly over the North Atlantic.

At 11 a.m. the center of Nicole was about 620 miles southeast of Cape Race, Newfoundland.

The system’s maximum sustained winds are 85 miles per hour as it moves to the east-southeast at 7 miles per hour.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 90 miles from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 415 miles.

Some weakening is forecast during the next 48 hours, but Nicole is expected to maintain hurricane strength through Monday.

There are no coastal watches or warnings in effect.

Swells associated with Nicole will continue to affect Bermuda, the United States east coast from the Carolinas northward, and the coastline of Atlantic Canada over the next couple of days.

Swells from Nicole should begin to affect the United States east coast south of the Carolinas, the Bahamas, the Greater Antilles, and the Leeward Islands in a day or two.  These swells will create dangerous surf conditions and rip currents.
