MIAMI, USA -- Tropical Storm was slowly strengthening on Sunday and is forecast to regain hurricane force by Monday afternoon as it begins a slow northward movement towards Bermuda after meandering for several days in the open Atlantic.

According to the National Hurricane Center (NHC) in Miami, at 5:00 pm EDT on Sunday, the centre of Tropical Storm Nicole was nearly stationary, located about 560 miles (900 km) south of Bermuda.

A slow northward motion should commence, followed by a turn toward the north-northwest by Monday.

Maximum sustained winds have increased to near 65 mph (100 km/h) with higher gusts. Gradual strengthening is forecast during the next couple of days.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 185 miles (295 km) from the centre.

Swells associated with Nicole and post-tropical cyclone Matthew should increase on Bermuda during the next couple of days. These swells will create dangerous surf conditions and rip currents.
