DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 400 PM EST (2100 UTC), the center of Post-Tropical Cyclone Nicole
was located near latitude 37.7 North, longitude 82.0 West. The
post-tropical cyclone is moving toward the northeast near 47 mph (76
km/h) and this motion is expected to continue through Saturday.

Maximum sustained winds are near 30 mph (45 km/h) with higher 
gusts. As the system has quickly transitioned to an extratropical 
cyclone... and will orbit around the periphery of a deepening low 
over the Great Lakes and southeast Canada... gusty surface winds 
and pressure falls will persist across the Northeast into this 
weekend. However, the risk of excessive rainfall and localized 
flash flooding with this extratropical transition will continue to 
diminish through Saturday and this will be the final advisory for 
Nicole.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 1000 mb (29.53 inches).


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
Key messages for post-tropical cyclone Nicole can be found in the
Tropical Cyclone Discussion under AWIPS header MIATCDAT2, WMO

TORNADOES:  A couple of tornadoes will be possible early this
evening across portions of southeast Virginia and Delmarva.

RAINFALL:  Nicole is expected to produce an additional 1 to 3 inches
of rain across the central Appalachians, northern Mid-Atlantic and
New England through Saturday morning.

Renewed river flooding on the St. Johns River in Florida is
ongoing.

Across portions of the Appalachians, upper Ohio Valley,
Mid-Atlantic, and New England, through early Saturday, limited
flooding impacts will be possible.
