Meteorologist Dave Osterberg says whether Tropical Storm Nicole becomes a hurricane – or not- the forecast for the Tampa Bay area will not change much. The region is anticipating tropical storm-force winds.
Winds will gust between 35-45 mph, with some higher gusts inland. There could be between 2 to 4 inches of rain. By Thursday morning, it will be a windy, rainy mess based on the current forecast path.
