SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV) — The tornado watch has been cancelled for our South Carolina counties. This means we now no longer have any active watches/warnings for the Coastal Empire and Lowcountry.
By Thursday morning, Nicole made landfall as a category 1 hurricane near Vero Beach, Florida. Now, the storm has weakened substantially to a tropical depression over northern Georgia with max sustained winds of 30mph.
First, our tornado threat has ended. So that is great news! We will still see rain and a bit of wind through the day. Wrap around showers will remain scattered through mid-day into the early afternoon. Stray showers remain possible this evening. Winds will be breezy from the south at 10-20 mph with occasional gusts up to 30 mph. These stronger gusts will be felt along the coast and inland.
Although we did see coastal flooding Thursday morning, high tides should stay below flood criteria today.
Conditions will improve for the weekend.
