Nicole gone; new Pacific depression

7:09 p.m. ET ET Mon., Oct.11, 2004



John Desjardins, Senior Meteorologist, The Weather Channel



What was once Subtropical Storm Nicole has been absorbed by a trough swinging through the northeastern U.S. These two systems will form a strengthening low pressure system south of Nova Scotia. As a result, strong winds can be expected across eastern New England overnight and during the day on Tuesday. Gusts may exceed 40 mph across Maine and Cape Cod and winds may approach 30 mph in New Hampshire, eastern Massachusetts, and Rhode Island. Rain showers will also back in to eastern New England, with Maine the most likely area to see persistent rainfall on Tuesday.


While the remainder of the Atlantic tropical basin is quiet, a new tropical depression has formed in the eastern Pacific. Tropical Depression 15-E developed this afternoon 250 miles southeast of Acapulco, Mexico. This depression could bring some choppy seas and heavy rain to Mexico's southwestern coast. The depression is expected to strengthen over the next several days and could become a hurricane by midweek. The good news is the forecast track takes the system west, away from land.
