Hurricane Nigel’s latest updates!
Early Monday, Hurricane Nigel was still churning 1,500 miles off to the East Coast in the wide Atlantic Ocean. Two weather systems, one of which could develop off the coast of Florida were being tracked by the National Hurricane Center.
The season’s fifth hurricane, Hurricane Nigel, is expected to intensify on Tuesday into a nearly major hurricane.
Fortunately, the Hurricane Nigel’s predicted route predicts that it will curve out to sea before getting close to US coastlines.
Hurricane Nigel was the only storm that was active on Monday, but the National Hurricane Center was also keeping a close track on two other systems that were developing in the Atlantic, including one that was a bit near to the Southeast US coast.
