JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- On September 11th, we saw Tropical Depression Fourteen form in the Eastern Atlantic Ocean. On the same day, the system strengthened to Tropical Storm Nadine. Since the beginning, "Nadine" has been through quite a cycle. Steering forces around the storm have been weak, allowing it to linger.
After sitting, spinning, and looping around in the Eastern Atlantic, Tropical Storm Nadine made a brush with the Azores, bringing some tropical storm conditions to those islands. After that, "Nadine" lost steam. Then, on September 21st, "Nadine" weakened to a Post-Tropical Cyclone or remnant low pressure system.
Signs did point to Nadine regenerating, and it has done just that. Today marks the storm's second time at hurricane status. As of 11 AM Friday, Hurricane Nadine had winds of 75 MPH (a minimal hurricane).
Despite Nadine's new/old status and strengthening trend, it will not affect land.
