6:25 pm
an hour. tomorrow flash flood watches and coastal flood watches, alberts, st. maries and along the beaches. that's where you'll see the highest winds. the low pressure that was nicole has become an area of low pressure. there's no nicole per say. also, we have an area of low pressure developing. that will change over and pull that moisture new our direction during the night and tomorrow. we have to look down to florida. all that moisture from south to north. it's just like an invasion. temporarily a break. this is all moving in our general direction. clouding up, there will be rain in new york, boston. so a very wet scenario for the entire east coast beginning
