With three-and-a-half weeks left in the 2022 hurricane season, a new subtropical storm has formed in the Atlantic.
Nicole, located about 490 miles east of the Bahamas as of early Monday afternoon, Nov. 7, is moving northwest.
A turn westward or west-southwestward is forecast Tuesday, Nov. 8 through early Thursday, Nov. 10, the National Hurricane Center said.
Nicole now has maximum sustained winds of around 45 miles per hour with higher gusts, the hurricane center noted.
Gradual strengthening is forecast during the next few days, and Nicole is forecast to be at hurricane intensity by Wednesday night, Nov. 9 while it is moving near or over the northwestern Bahamas.
"On the forecast track, the center of Nicole will approach the northwestern Bahamas on Tuesday, move near or over those islands on Wednesday, and approach the east coast of Florida by Wednesday night," the hurricane center said.
