MIAMI, USA -- The Bermuda Weather Service on Monday issued a hurricane watch for Bermuda as Tropical Storm Nicole picked up speed heading towards the island and was forecast to regain hurricane force by Tuesday.

According to the National Hurricane Center (NHC) in Miami, at 5:00 pm EDT on Monday, the centre of Tropical Storm Nicole was located about 415 miles (670 km) south of Bermuda, moving toward the north near 6 mph (9 km/h). A slow north- northwestward to northwestward motion is expected through late Tuesday, followed by a turn toward the north by Wednesday.

Maximum sustained winds remain near 60 mph (95 km/h) with higher gusts. Slow strengthening is forecast, and Nicole is expected to reach hurricane strength on Tuesday. Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 160 miles (260 km) from the centre.

Hurricane conditions are possible on Bermuda by Wednesday night.

Swells associated with Nicole should increase on Bermuda during the next couple of days. These swells will create dangerous surf conditions and rip currents.
