SAVANNAH, Ga. (WTOC) - Hurricane Nicole will approach Florida tonight before shifting northeast toward Georgia, Thursday and Friday are First Alert Weather Days:

Most of the rain will likely remain offshore this evening and to our south but will increase late overnight heading into Thursday.

Thursday and Friday look damp and breezy, Nicole begins to move closer to Georgia. Coastal areas could receive 1-3+ inches of rain (flash flooding possible), wind gusts over 45 mph are possible at the coast as well as higher than normal tides, rough surf, beach erosion and an increased risk for rip currents. Showers move onshore early Thursday and will progress inland throughout the day. The heaviest rain looks to move in midday through the afternoon. There is also a low risk for tornadoes during this time.

Thursday’s high tide at Fort Pulaski: 10.2′ I 8:55AM (Moderate Flood Stage)

Power outages are also possible Thursday and Friday as the wind picks up. Highs will be held in the low to mid 70s Thursday and mid to upper 70s Friday thanks to the wind and rain.

This system should exit the area late Friday, with cooler air finally filtering back in. Temperatures could fall into the 40s Sunday morning with highs in the upper 50s to lower 60s.
