MIAMI, USA -- Tropical Storm Nicole formed in the Atlantic on Tuesday and, at 5:00 pm EDT on Tuesday, was located about 510 miles (820 km) northeast of San Juan, Puerto Rico, moving toward the northwest near 9 mph (15 km/h). This general motion is expected to continue over the next 48 hours. Maximum sustained winds are near 50 mph (85 km/h) with higher gusts. Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 70 miles (110 km) from the centre.

According to the National Hurricane Center (NHC) in Miami, little change in strength is forecast for the next day or so, followed by gradual weakening before the system becomes a threat to Bermuda.

Meanwhile, yet another tropical wave located several hundred miles east of the Windward Islands is producing a large area of disorganized showers and thunderstorms. Development, if any, of this system is expected to be slow to occur while the wave moves westward at 10 to 15 mph.

Regardless of development, heavy rain and gusty winds are possible in the Windward Islands during the next couple of days during the wave's passage.
