Veterans Day starts off dry for any morning parades and ceremonies. A passing shower is possible in the afternoon, but most of the steady rain holds off until after 3-4pm. It will unseasonably warm, with highs close to 70°

Mainly dry skies early Friday afternoon then showers arrive near or just before sunset.

GALE WARNING FRIDAY NIGHT INTO SATURDAY A.M.

TRACKING NICOLE: Rain/Wind Locally By Friday Eve/Night

Right now Nicole has weakened to Tropical Depression with winds of 35 mph, but still producing rain and some wind.

Continued weakening is forecast as Nicole tracks north across Georgia before turning north and northeast on Friday.

FORECAST TRACK

The remnants of Nicole will merge with an approaching frontal system Friday evening and night, bringing a period of rain and gusty winds into New England.

Southern New England looks like it will be on the windy side of the storm with the heaviest of the rain passing into northern New England.

We still expect 1/2″ to 1.0″ of rain for our area from Friday night into early Saturday morning, however, excessive rain amounts are not expected. Storm drains clogged with leaves may create” localized minor” street flooding late Friday night into dawn Saturday.

RAIN AMOUNTS FROM FRIDAY NIGHT TO SATURDAY 8AM

PEAK GUSTS: PRE-DAWN HOURS SATURDAY (MPH)

South and southwest winds gusting will ramp up Friday evening and night, with gusts to 40-50mph with some isolated gusts to 55mph late Friday night (after 10pm) into the pre-dawn hours Saturday. There is a risk of  “isolated ” power outages. Widespread outages are not expected

At the coast, the strongest wind looks like it will arrive at low tide overnight Friday. As the tide moves back in Saturday morning around 10AM, we could see some very “minor” coastal flooding and minor beach erosion as well.

This is a quick-moving storm. It should be gone by mid to late Saturday morning with sunshine and warm temperatures Saturday afternoon.
