The BWS said Nicole is a “potential threat” to Bermuda.

Swells associated with Nicole, along with rough surf conditions, are expected to affect Bermuda for the new several days.

The Miami-based National Hurricane Centre (NHC) says some additional strengthening is likely over the next day or so, followed by slow weakening.

The NHC said Nicole is currently located several hundred miles east of Matthew, a Category 4 hurricane, that has caused death and destruction in the Caribbean and is now heading towards the east coast of the United States.

Last month, Tropical Storm Karl dumped around four inches of rain on on the island  but caused no serious damage.

Rainfall in Bermuda for 2016, is already more than 10 inches above normal.
