CURRENT TROPICAL CYCLONES
Post-Tropical Cyclone Nicholas…is located about 95 miles south of Alexandria, Louisiana
 

Atlantic Ocean

Showers and thunderstorms have become slightly less organized in association with a tropical wave located a little more than 800 miles west-southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands.

However, environmental conditions are expected to be conducive for development during the next few days, and a tropical depression is still likely to form late this week or this weekend.

This system is expected to move westward to west-northwestward across the tropical Atlantic during the next several days.

* Formation chance through 48 hours…high…70 percent
* Formation chance through 5 days…high…80 percent

>>> Showers and thunderstorms over the far eastern tropical Atlantic are associated with a tropical wave that will move off the west coast of Africa today.

Environmental conditions are forecast to be marginally conducive for some gradual development over the next few days while the system moves west-northwestward to northwestward over the far eastern Atlantic.

* Formation chance through 48 hours…low…10 percent
* Formation chance through 5 days…low…20 percent

 

Shower and thunderstorm activity has increased this morning over the eastern portion of a broad area of low pressure located about 250 miles south-southeast of the Outer Banks of North Carolina.

Environmental conditions are expected to become more conducive for development, and a tropical depression is still likely to form during the next day or two while the system moves northward to north-northeastward off the southeast and mid-Atlantic U.S. coasts.

Regardless of development, this system could bring high surf to portions of the southeast and mid-Atlantic U.S. coasts later this week and this weekend.

An Air Force Reserve reconnaissance aircraft is scheduled to investigate the disturbance this afternoon.

* Formation chance through 48 hours…high…70 percent
* Formation chance through 5 days…high…70 percent

POST-TROPICAL CYCLONE NICHOLAS NEAR LOUISIANA COAST…FLASH FLOODING REMAINS A POSSIBILITY ACROSS PORTIONS OF THE CENTRAL GULF COAST OVER THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS

According to the NHC Advisory 19…The low center was moving toward the north-northeast near 5 mph (7 km/h) and this motion is expected to continue through Friday.

Maximum sustained winds are near 25 mph (35 km/h) with higher gusts. Continued gradual weakening is forecast during the next 48 hours with the low center eventually dissipating.

HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND 

RAINFALL: Nicholas is expected to produce additional rainfall amounts of 2 to 4 inches across the central Gulf coast Friday, with isolated storm totals of 12 inches possible. Flash flooding impacts, especially in urban areas, are possible across these regions.

Widespread minor river flooding is expected, while scattered moderate river flooding is possible, across portions of southeastern Louisiana, southern Mississippi, southern Alabama, and the Florida Panhandle.
