At 10pm EST, the center of Nicole is forecast to approach the northwestern Bahamas overnight, move near or over those islands on Wednesday, and approach the east coast of Florida within the hurricane warning area Wednesday night or early Thursday. Nicole's center is then expected to move across central and northern Florida into southern Georgia Thursday and Thursday night. Maximum sustained winds have increased to near 70 mph (110 km/h) with higher gusts. Some strengthening is expected during the next day or so, and Nicole is forecast to become a hurricane later tonight and remain a hurricane when it reaches the east coast of Florida.
