SUBTROPICAL STORM NICOLE
|Subtropical Storm Nicole in the Northern Atlantic
On October 10, the National Hurricane Center decided that an area of low pressure west of Bermuda had become organized enough
to become Subtropical Storm Nicole. The island of Bermuda felt minimal effects of the storm before it moved northeast. Winds
were at 45 mph on the first advisory, and remained so for most of Nicole's life. The system began to become extratropical
shortly after formation, and became completely extratropical on October 11.
No damages or deaths were reported due to Subtropical Storm Nicole. Nicole was the first subtropical storm to take a name
from the regular yearly list. This rule was established in 2002. Prior to 2002, subtropical storms were referred to as 'Subtropical
Storm 1' or 'Subtropical Storm 2' and so on.
