We are currently looking at the effects of Tropical Storm Nicole to hit Thursday afternoon into Friday.  Wind and rain will pick up into the evening on Thursday, with 25-30 mph gusts expected.  We’re expecting waves of showers, with rainfall totals between 1.5 to 3 inches.

Earlier today, The Weather Channel upgraded the Subtropical Storm Nicole to tropical storm status.  The storm, which is centered east of the Bahamas, could gain strength. If so, it could become a hurricane as it moves toward Florida. The question… Will it affect Georgia and South Carolina?

You may have noticed stronger winds today.  With the current dry air, and breezy conditions, the National Weather Service is warning of elevated fire danger.  If you are burning, please use extreme caution. Winds are expected to continue ahead of Tropical Storm Nicole.

A tropical storm or hurricane is very rare at this time of year.  In fact, the National Weather Service says only 5 have impacted central South Carolina and eastern Georgia in November, dating all the way back to 1850.

As of 1 p.m. today (November 8th), Tropical Storm Nicole had sustained winds of 60 mph, and gaining strength.
