Tropical Cyclone Nestor Weakens as it Departs FL

5 PM Final Update

The center of Post-Tropical Cyclone Nestor made landfall along on

St. Vincent Island, Florida earlier today. The Tropical Storm Warning has been discontinued for the Gulf Coast of Florida and there are no tropical cyclone coastal watches or warnings in effect.

Here are the key messages from the National Hurricane Center for the state of Florida:

1. Gale-force winds will gradually develop over the Atlantic waters

and along the coasts northeastern Florida and Georgia tonight, and

spread northward to the Carolinas on Sunday.

2. Isolated flash flooding is possible across the southeastern

United States into Sunday.

3. Wind and coastal flooding hazards along the U.S. East Coast will

be covered by non-tropical watches and warnings issued by the local National Weather Service since the system is expected to lose its tropical characteristics after it moves inland along the Gulf Coast.
