Hurricane Nicole was a November 2022 hurricane in the Atlantic Ocean. The storm struck the northern Bahamas and eastern Florida on November 9. It continued into the following day as a mild-to-moderate Category 1 hurricane.

Before Nicole hit, tropical storm and hurricane notices were issued for the Bahamas and from eastern Florida to South Carolina.

The storm started as a subtropical cyclone then became a tropical one. It soon became a category 1 hurricane with winds up to 75 miles per hour. It weakened back into a tropical storm after making landfall in Florida.

Storm surges were recorded up to 6 feet in certain areas. The storm was expected to give tropical storm conditions to coastal Georgia and cause storm surge. There, in some places, a storm surge watch or warning was in effect.
