MIAMI, Florida – Tropical Storm Nicole, which formed as a subtropical storm in Atlantic waters on Monday, continues to strengthen on Tuesday and is very close to becoming a hurricane as it moves northeast of the Bahamas. The system will reach eastern Florida on Wednesday night or Thursday morning.

A Hurricane in Florida in November, Something Unusual

November is the last month of hurricane season, and tropical activity generally begins to subside. However, the 2022 hurricane season was pushed back and this year almost all dominant hurricanes in the Atlantic formed after August.

Florida has been hit nine times by tropical systems in November in the past 170 years, about a 5% chance in any given year.

Of those nine, seven were from the western Caribbean and the Gulf of Mexico. That makes this week’s developing system, should it consolidate and hit Florida, very rare.

For now, the forecast suggests that the frequency and intensity of rain will increase as we approach the middle of the week. It will become increasingly windy with dangerous ocean conditions and a high risk of rip currents.

Winds and waves coupled with a full moon and rising sea levels will be made worse by climate change to produce significant coastal flooding, according to an analysis by meteorologist John Morales. Communities such as Fort Lauderdale, Miami Beach, Miami Shores, and neighborhoods near Biscayne Boulevard such as Edgewater, Coconut Grove, Coral Gables and the Florida Keys should be prepared for flooding.

Flooding continues in Volusia County. In the Deltona area, residents also complain that they haven’t come to collect much debris.
