But the NHC suggests it approaches very near Iceland, Some 300km southwest of Reykjavik, Iceland then turn Northwest towards the icy glaciers of Iceland.
As said prior, Hurricane Nigel will remain out to sea and will never affect any major landmass, but when it turns post-tropical it might potentially pose a threat to Iceland and Greenland as a Post Tropical Storm. The largest city that could be impacted by Nigel when it turns Post Tropical is Reykjavik, the capital and largest city of Iceland. Flooding is not a concern since it won’t dump alot of rain unto Iceland. However Storm surge might be a particular problem for the Southwestern coast of Iceland when Nigel approaches, so in early preparation it is best advised to stay out from the shore when Nigel approaches.
