Post-tropical Cyclone Nicholas continues its slow slog over Louisiana.  At 5 am, Nicholas was located about 40 miles west-southwest of Alexandria, Louisiana and was moving north at 7 miles per hour.  Nicholas is still dropping flooding rains over the northern Gulf coast, and that will continue into Saturday.

Elsewhere in the tropics, the low that’s now about 100 miles off the Outer Banks of North Carolina has a high chance of becoming a depression in the next day or two.  The wave entering the central Atlantic is still quite disorganized, but it still has a high chance of becoming a depression.  We’ll continue to keep an eye on it.  And the wave in the eastern Atlantic has a low chance of developing but will bring rain and gusty winds to the Cape Verde Islands.
