Residents in Florida are advised to be ready for a potential tropical storm later this week as they are still recovering from Hurricane Ian.

Florida authorities are advising people that a tropical storm may bring heavy rain and dangerous winds this week, particularly those who were recently affected by the deadly Hurricane Ian.

The National Hurricane Center reports that Subtropical Storm Nicole has developed in the southwest Atlantic around 555 miles east of the northwest Bahamas at the time of the warning. By Tuesday evening, the storm, which has winds of 45 mph with greater gusts, is anticipated to make landfall in Florida.

Flash flood warnings already exist for Monday afternoon for the US territory of Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands, while tropical storm warnings exist for the northwest Bahamas.

According to MINIECHAT Meteorologist Robert Shackelford, as the system develops, it may churn toward Florida and the southeast of the United States until the beginning of this week.

Shackelford said that eastern Florida and the southeast of the US would be affected by torrential rains, coastal floods, gale-force winds, and rip tides regardless of development.

According to Shackelford, rainfall across the Sunshine State may range from 2 to 4 inches, with a few isolated events perhaps topping 6 inches.

There might be 2 to 4 inches of rain in the areas south of Tampa, some of which are still attempting to recover from Hurricane Ian’s impact in late September. While places south of Jacksonville might get 1 to 4 inches of rain, Orlando is also at danger of receiving 1 to 2 inches.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis advised locals to exercise cautious on Sunday in advance of the hurricane.

In a press release, DeSantis stated, “I urge all Floridians to be prepared and establish a plan in the case a hurricane affects Florida. We will keep an eye on Invest 98L’s progress and trajectory, and we keep in touch with all of our regional and local government partners.

DeSantis emphasized that locals should be ready for a higher danger of beach erosion, strong winds, rain, and coastal flooding. He said, “Wind gusts may be forecast throughout Florida’s East Coast as early as Tuesday of next week.”

Much of the Florida Peninsula may anticipate windy to gusty weather on Tuesday, which is election day. For central and eastern cities, including Miami, north to Daytona Beach and inland toward Orlando and Okeechobee, the likelihood of rain is anticipated to rise during the day.

The National Weather Service in Miami warned that “conditions may worsen as early as Tuesday and continue through Thursday night/Friday morning.” Rip currents, coastal flooding, hazardous surf/marine conditions, flooding rains, severe persistent winds, and waterspouts/tornadoes are just a few of the potential effects on South Florida.

DeSantis said that officials are working with regional emergency management organizations in all 67 counties of the state as the state continues to recover from Ian’s terrible impact.

According to the press release, the objective is to “identify possible resource shortages and to execute strategies that will enable the state to react promptly and effectively ahead of the probable intensification” of the storm system.

On the west coast of the Florida peninsula, Hurricane Ian made landfall as a strong Category 4 hurricane carrying almost 150 mph winds. At least 120 people were killed by the hurricane in Florida, and it also tore apart numerous houses and small towns. For many days, thousands of people were without water or electricity.

A tropical or subtropical depression might form during the next two days, according to forecasts, even if the precise prognosis for the approaching storm is still uncertain.

The weather service warned that the system “could be at or near hurricane strength before it approaches the northwestern Bahamas and the east coast of Florida on Wednesday and Thursday, potentially bringing the possibility of a dangerous storm surge, damaging winds, and heavy rainfall to a portion of those areas.”
