Hurricane Nadine
Hurricane Nadine has reached its peak: now a high end category one hurricane with winds around 90 MPH. Slow weakening is forecast to begin by tonight and continue for the next couple of days as it aims generally towards the Azores Islands. Azores may get brushed by Nadine by around Wednesday when it's supposed to be a strong tropical storm so they must prepare for possible tropical storm conditions...especially western parts of the island chain. Besides for the Azores Islands, there is no concern for any land masses in the foreseeable future with long-lived Nadine.

Atlantic AOI
There is an area of interest being monitored in the Atlantic basin. It is not expected to develop all that much in the immediate time frame but could gradually develop over time as it tracks into an area more favorable for development. It will be watched for further signs of development in the future. NHC gives this one only around a 10% chance of TC formation by Tuesday afternoon.

FL Flooding
To answer one's question: heavy rainfall is forecast to potentially cause localized flooding over South Florida tomorrow and on Tuesday. That's because of moisture and an area of low pressure mixed with the presence of a massive ridge setup over western US.
