How will Hurricane Nicole affect York County? Here's the latest

The remnants of Hurricane Nicole will likely bring heavy rain to York County, but not to the extent expected earlier in the week, according to the National Weather Service Office in State College.

The forecast now is for between 1 and 2 inches of rain in York County, meteorologist Rachel Buvala said. Earlier forecasts had the area getting between 2 and 3 inches of rain on Veterans Day Friday.

"We're not expecting too many flooding impacts," she said. "If any flooding does occur, it will be very localized and isolated in those poor drainage areas."

In Florida, Tropical Storm Nicole has sent multiple homes collapsing into the Atlantic Ocean. Nicole made landfall as a hurricane early Thursday near Vero Beach, Florida, but the brunt of the damage was along the East Coast well north of there, in the Daytona Beach area.

Its damaging coastal surge was hitting beachfront properties in Daytona Beach Shores that lost their last protections during Hurricane Ian. Nicole is expected to dump lots of rain over a large area of the southeastern United States, with up to 6 inches falling over the Blue Ridge Mountains.

The rest of central Pennsylvania can expect between 2 and 3 inches from the storm's remnants, Buvala said.

As far as winds are concerns, York County can expect some good gusts as storms move through, she said.

"There will be some gusty winds, from 25 to 30 mph, mainly Friday night," Buvala said. "That will be the gustiest time for winds, but nothing too much more than that."

The chance of rain is 100% for Veterans Day, with a high temperature of 69 degrees and a low of 58.

Thursday will be the calm before the storm, with a high near 64 and a low of 54 degrees. There is a 40% chance of rain Thursday night
