Rain, Thunderstorms, and Wind Expected in the Area as Nicole Comes Through

Daniel Prince

Veterans Day parade cancelled, ceremony moved

After Hurricane Nicole makes landfall in Florida, the storm is expected to move across central and northern Florida and into southern Georgia through the day today, and into the Carolinas tomorrow. The forecast storm track brings the center of Nicole through the Upstate during the day Friday. Nicole is expected to weaken to a tropical depression early Friday. The large storm’s effects will be felt far from the center, with tropical storm effects expected to be felt along the southern coast of South Carolina during the day today. There is a 20-30% chance that our area could experience tropical storm force winds, defined as a 1-minute average of winds greater than or equal to 39 miles per hour. The area could see 1-2 inches of rain from the storm, with some locally higher amounts possible. There is a level 1 marginal risk of severe thunderstorms in our area for Friday. Some of the storms could be capable of producing isolated tornados. Rain is expected to begin in Union County later this afternoon and continue through Friday, with thunderstorms possible Thursday night into Friday. Winds could gust as high as 32 mph on Friday. The weather has already forced the cancellation of the annual Veterans Day Parade on Main Street Friday. The ceremony will go on as planned at 11 a.m., but it will be moved indoors at the National Guard Armory. WBCU will continue to watch the storm and bring you the latest.
