Tropical Storm Nadine Track: Does Storm Nadine Pose a Threat to Land?

As Florida and other parts of the eastern seaboard reel from the impacts of Hurricane Michael, Tropical Storm Nadine is churning in the Atlantic Ocean. Nadine was located 790 miles west of the Cabo Verde Islands on Friday afternoon, moving west-northwest at 8 miles per hour.

A forecasted track for Nadine released by the National Hurricane Center showed it would not pose any threat to land, instead remaining in the ocean in the coming days. The storm was bringing winds of up to 45 mph.

Nadine formed early Tuesday morning as Tropical Depression 15, according to AccuWeather. No coastal watches or warnings were in effect as a result of Nadine, which was expected to weaken over the coming days. The storm was predicted to continue moving west into Saturday.

"Weakening is forecast during the next couple of days, and Nadine is expected to dissipate by Sunday," the National Hurricane Center said.

Also in the Atlantic on Friday was Hurricane Leslie, located about 350 miles south of the Azores. Leslie was tracking toward Spain, and the National Hurricane Center urged those in Portugal and Spain to monitor the storm's path. A tropical storm warning was also in effect for Madeira Island on Friday.

In the continental United States, Hurricane Michael wrought havoc when it made landfall in Mexico Beach, Florida, this week. At least 11 people were killed as of Friday morning, including an 11-year-old girl. Hundreds of thousands of people remained without power, while whole communities were devastated and homes were destroyed.

Authorities said Michael's death toll could rise in the coming days as search and rescue operations continued.
