The National Weather Service Raleigh Bureau said in its latest briefing today that Tropical Storm Nicole is expected to be absorbed by a cold front late Friday.

Nicole is expected to turn northeastward and move into the Carolinas later.

The storm is expected to produce pockets of intense wind damage in central North Carolina due to scattered tornadoes mainly south and east of the Triangle late tonight and anywhere across central North Carolina Friday through Friday evening.

The storm is expected to produce 20- to 30-mph wind gusts with a few isolated gusts of 40- to 45-mph associated with late Friday thunderstorms. These gusts could result in a few downed trees and power lines anywhere across the region, but especially south and east of the Triad — most likely during the day Friday.

The heaviest rain associated with the storm is likely Friday morning and again late Friday with the heaviest amounts occurring across the Triad.
