Models agree that a significant slow-down should occur, and in five days, we'll still be talking about Nadine near the Azores! In fact, most guidance is showing a re-recurvature when Nadine reaches the Azores... coming back toward the southwest and possibly re-intensifying. Recall that the first advisory was issued for Nadine (TD14 then) on the morning of September 11, and the last could still be at least a week away!
The official track forecast from NHC has the storm centered over the Azores in 5 days... as a tropical storm.
Elsewhere, the basin is abnormally quiet for mid-September.
In terms of ACE, the season has slipped to 134% of average for this date. As I mentioned on Friday, every day without a hurricane (or major hurricane, or multiple hurricanes) this time of year is "behind" an average day.
