When it made landfall, it was a hurricane; now Tropical Storm Nicole crossed Florida and is heading north.  Because it is a widespread storm with winds and rain extending over a wide area, it will create some wind and a lot of rain for our area, and that may mean that some plans will have to be changed.  The Lincolnton Veterans Day Parade has been canceled and the ceremony honoring the Veteran of  the Year will now be held at 11 AM Friday at the American Legion building on N. Aspen St.

The National Weather Service has issued a Wind Advisory for our area from 7 PM Thursday until 7 PM Friday.  A 70% chance of rain during the day Thursday goes up to near 100% Thursday night with over an inch or rain expected.  

More rain, sometimes heavy, is expected Friday; and while the rain will likely diminish as the night progresses, some showers will still be happening through Friday evening.  

By Saturday, the rain will be gone and it will be a mostly sunny day.  There may still be some wind but not that much, and by Saturday night, it will be clear and cold with an overnight low of 38° after reaching near 70° during the day.  

Some high school football playoff games that were orignally scheduled for Friday were rescheduled for Thursday.

Some Veterans Day celebrations occurred ahead of the day. Rock Springs School hosted a Veterans Breakfast Wednesday morning, followed by a program in front of the school. St. James Elementary had a Veterans Day Parade on Thursday. Union School held its 12th annual Veterans Breakfast on Thursday followed by a ceremony in front of the school. Catawba Springs School had a program Thursday singing patriotic songs. Students at West Lincoln Middle School were placing flast for each member of their families who had served in the military. North Brook Elementary had a light breakfast honoring veterans Thursday morning, followed by remarks by Josh Campbell and songs from the first graders.

The Town of Stanley had its Veterans Day program Thursday evening at First Presbyterian Church.

East Lincoln was scheduled to play at Ashboro in the NCHSAA 3A soccer playoffs this Thursday evening. Lincoln Charter had a 2A playoff game scheduled at Newton-Conover. Those were not changed. High school football playoff games including Lincolnton at Monroe, Tuscola at East Lincoln, Shelby at Burns, Bunker Hill at Community School of Davidson, Crest at Oak Grove and South Point at Greensboro Dudley were rescheduled for Thursday. Maiden's home game vs Mt. Pleasant and Smoky Mountain at Kings Mountain were still scheduled for Friday.
