Nicholas is now a post-tropical system as it moves very slowly over the southern Louisiana coast.  At 5 am, Nicholas was located about 60 miles south-southeast of Lafayette, Louisiana.  Maximum sustained winds were 25 miles per hour, but the story is the heavy rain and dangerous flooding along the Gulf coast eastward to the Florida panhandle.  Nicholas was moving north at 2 miles per hour, increasing the potential for flash flooding.

Elsewhere, the low that’s now several hundred miles east of central Florida has a high chance of becoming a depression during the next five days.  The wave in the eastern Atlantic that we’ve been watching has a high chance of developing in the next couple of days.  We’ll keep an eye on that one.  And a wave just emerging into the eastern Atlantic has a low chance of development as it approaches the Cape Verde Islands during the next few days
