At 500 AM AST (0900 UTC), the center of Post-Tropical Cyclone Nicole was located near latitude 47.1 North, longitude 39.5 West. The post-tropical cyclone is moving toward the north-northeast near 31 mph (50 km/h) and this motion is expected to continue through Wednesday night.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 345 miles (555 km) from the center.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 969 mb (28.62 inches).



HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
SURF: Large swells associated with Nicole will affect the United States east coast, the coast of Atlantic Canada, Bermuda, the Bahamas, the Greater Antilles, the Leeward Islands, and the Azores islands for the next few days, creating dangerous surf conditions and rip currents. These swells are also likely to reach Europe and the northwest coast of Africa in a day or two. Please refer to products being issued by your local weather office for more information.
