EAST PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — Over the past couple of weeks, we’ve seen heightened activity in the tropical Atlantic as hurricane season enters its final stretch.
The Atlantic hurricane season runs through Nov. 30, and there’s been no shortage of storms so far this month.
For just the third time in recorded history, there were two active hurricanes roaming the Atlantic in the month of November.
Those storms were Hurricane Lisa, which impacted Belize, and Hurricane Martin that formed and subsequently dissipated in the northern Atlantic.
What We’re Watching
A Wind Advisory is in effect from 10PM Friday through 11AM Saturday for coastal areas. Winds could gust as high as 50-55 mph, especially further southeast.
The gusty winds will be the main threat with the quick-hitting remnants of Nicole.
Isolated power outages and downed branches are possible.
Computer model guidance keeps the heaviest rain associated with Nicole’s remnants to our west over parts of New York, Pennsylvania, and Connecticut.
As we approach the last few weeks of hurricane season, there have been a total of 14 named storms.
