(Reuters) - Hurricane Nicole is now a little stronger and is expected to slow down and meander, the U.S. National Hurricane Center said on Thursday.
Nicole, a weak Category 1 hurricane on a scale of 1 through 5, is located about 330 miles (555 km) south of Bermuda and maximum sustained winds have increased to 85 miles per hour (140 km/h), the Miami-based weather forecaster said.
Although some additional strengthening is expected tonight, weakening is forecast by late Friday through Saturday, the NHC added.
Swells associated with this slow-moving storm are affecting Bermuda, and these conditions are likely to continue for the next several days, according to the NHC.
