Here is the Infrared imagery of Tropical Storm Nicole as of 11 AM CDT. It is a poorly organized storm with the “center” (which is very difficult to discern) of the storm moving over Cuba. The brunt of the rainfall associated with this storm is on the east side of the storm, and will quickly move up the east coast of Florida through Wednesday.
The storm will then become a major rain maker for North & South Carolina and Virginia into Thursday, while bringing rain up most of the east coast. Below is an estimate of the 2 day rainfall accumulations from Nicole.
