Nicole Wind Field 11/9

This storm has a huge wind field, the biggest I remember for a Florida storm since I’ve been tracking them (1995 onward)

At Noon CST the center was over Great Abaco Island

The 6PM CST update for the map is wrong. I’ll post when it’s corrected.

Nicole Wind Field 11/7

Ian attacked the Gulf side of the Peninsula, now Nicole is going for the Atlantic Coast. This is why you should vote early in Florida. For someone who claims to be anointed by G-d, DeMentis doesn’t seem to have too much pull concerning the weather.
