Subtropical Nicole forms, takes aim at Florida


On Monday morning, Subtropical Storm Nicole formed near the Bahamas. According to the National Hurricane Center, a prolonged period of hazardous weather is expected over the northwestern Bahamas, Florida, and the southeastern coast of the United States this week.
