Hurricane Nigel Not Threatening Land

Looks like Florida and the rest of mainland U.S. will be dodging a bullet with hurricane Nigel.

The National Hurricane Center is tracking the storm in the central Atlantic,not posing a threat to land.

Nigel is moving toward the northwest near 12 mph (19 km/h), and this general motion is expected to continue for the next couple of days. Nigel is then forecast to turn northward late Tuesday, and then accelerate northeastward through the rest of the week.

Maximum sustained winds have increased to near 80 mph (130 km/h) with higher gusts. Nigel is forecast to rapidly strengthen into a major hurricane on Tuesday. A gradual weakening trend could start late Wednesday.
