Tropical Storm Nadine Forms But Forecasters Don’t Expect it to Survive Long

FLORIDA, United States, Wednesday October 10, 2018 – Nadine is the latest tropical storm to form in the Atlantic, but forecasters believe that before the end of this week, it will be no more.

And it is expected to dissipate far enough away from the northeastern Caribbean islands to not stir rough surf in these areas, according to Accuweather.

After developing yesterday a few hundred miles to the west-southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands, Nadine strengthened overnight and was this morning carrying maximum sustained winds near 65 miles per hour.

This morning, it was located about 505 miles west-southwest of the southernmost Cabo Verde Islands and was moving towards the northwest at seven miles per hour.

The National Hurricane Centre (NHC) in Miami said Nadine is forecast to dissipate over the weekend, as the storm is traveling on a path that will take it into a zone of strong winds and a pocket of cool water that will ultimately lead to weakening.

“All of the intensity guidance indicates that Nadine will weaken quickly by tomorrow, and it could become a depression by 72 hours.  Dissipation will likely follow shortly after,” it said.
