Tropical storm Nicole is approaching the US: it will ruin the weather in New York

Tropical Storm Nicole could turn into a hurricane before hitting Florida in the coming days. It is predicted to strike New York starting November 11, reports Silive.

Storm Nicole, the 14th storm of the 2022 Atlantic hurricane season, is expected to bring dangerous storm surges and hurricane conditions to the Bahamas on Tuesday before continuing west to Florida's east coast. Almost a month after Hurricane Ian devastated the state.

Dave Dombek, AccuWeather's senior meteorologist, said the main impact from Hurricane Nicole, which is moving up the coast, will be rainfall that could last over Staten Island until the weekend.

“Looks like there's a chance we'll have some rain from Nicole. The storm is heading north along the coast later this week, Dombek said. “The storm will reach New York on Friday, probably in the afternoon.”

According to the latest forecast, precipitation will continue until the evening. And it will probably rain on Saturday.

However, Dombek said how long the rain will last over the weekend has not yet been determined.

Because Nicole was born in the tropics and has a rich source of moisture, the rainfall that hits New York can be heavy at times.

“The good news is that we've been pretty dry lately. We didn’t have rainy weather, so that one storm followed another, and the ground was damp,” said Dombek. He suggested that the earth would have to absorb these precipitations.

However, Dombek said clogged storm drains could cause some problems.

If Nicole strengthens into a hurricane, it will be the eighth storm this year. Recently, Hurricane Martin and Hurricane Lisa hit the Atlantic, becoming the sixth and seventh hurricanes of this year's season.

Forecasters predicted an above-average hurricane season this year. And then doubled that forecast in early August, despite the relatively slow onset of storm activity.

The update says 14 to 20 storms are still expected in the Atlantic this year. Including six to ten hurricanes and three to five major storms.

The Atlantic hurricane season officially ends on November 30th. But storms can develop outside of this range as well.

Experts link climate change to the more extreme effects of storms.

Insidiously rising tides and a warmer atmosphere create the potential for significant storm surge and more rainfall.

Higher temperatures warm the air particles in Earth's atmosphere, allowing them to hold more moisture than cooler particles. Storms, which are very efficient at removing all water vapor from the atmosphere, release this moisture in the form of heavy precipitation.

Researchers can now use computer models to determine exactly how much the storm-induced climate change has worsened. Recent observations have shown a 5-15% increase in precipitation.
