CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – What was Hurricane Matthew is now not a concern for the United States anymore, but we can’t put our guard down for tropical storms just yet.

Hurricane season continues until November 30th so there is still time for more active.

The tropics in the Atlantic are still active. Tropical Storm Nicole is forecasted to become a Hurricane by Wednesday morning and move northeast towards Bermuda.This so far will have no impact on the United States and looks to be staying out to sea.

After seeing the damage from Hurricane Matthew these storms are very powerful and feed off of the warm waters for this time of the year.

We are still in peak season of Hurricane season, which will continue through late October.
