From the National Weather Service, Newport/Morehead City, NC:

**Tornado Watch in effect for all of Eastern North Carolina until 3:00 PM**

Nicole further weakened to a tropical depression as the center of circulation moves northeast across Georgia. However, effects from the residual storm are still expected. The main threat will be the possibility of several tornadoes today, and Worth Tornado valid for all of Eastern North Carolina until 3pm today. Showers and thunderstorms may break up during the late afternoon and early evening, but more showers and thunderstorms are possible later this evening before things move away from the coast late tonight. Activity is not expected to be heavy this evening, although gusty winds and heavy downpours are still possible at times.

As southerly winds increase later today and peak this evening, minor water level increases are possible on the Hatteras Island Sound north of Buxton to Duck, as well as in mainland Dare County. A coastal flood warning remains in effect for these locations from tonight until Saturday afternoon.

Please see the attached 2-page briefing for details on the tornado and the threat of coastal flooding.
