TROPICAL STORM NICOLE DISCUSSION NUMBER   6
NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL   AL162010
500 PM EDT WED SEP 29 2010

SATELLITE...AIRCRAFT...AND SURFACE DATA SHOW THAT THE CIRCULATION OF
NICOLE HAS BECOME ELONGATED THIS AFTERNOON.  THE CENTER...
WHICH WAS NEVER VERY WELL DEFINED...HAS BECOME UN-TRACKABLE AND
THIS WILL BE THE LAST NHC ADVISORY ON THIS SYSTEM.





However, while the center of the tropical low pressure system became “un-trackable” earlier this afternoon, the abundant moisture associated with this system is still evident on satellite and radar imagery this evening.  Computer models continue to show a series of low pressure systems moving north along the south Atlantic coast toward Maryland tonight and Thursday.  These low pressure systems, and the tropical moisture tied up in them, will bring a threat of heavy rain and severe thunderstorms to Maryland Thursday.  As of late Wednesday evening the main threats to Maryland on Thursday are:

Rainfall:  2-5″, possibly more than 5″ on the eastern shore

Winds:  Gusts to 35 mph in heavier showers

Severe Storms:  Isolated severe thunderstorms with possible tornadoes

Tides:  Tides on the western shore of the bay 1 to 2 feet above normal
