Hurricane Teddy Update For Nova Scotia – Saturday 9:00pm


From Environment Canada – – 8:25PM 2020-09-19.

The next information statement will be issued by 3:00 a.m. ADT.

Hurricane Teddy poised to impact Atlantic Canada Tuesday and Wednesday.

Hurricane Teddy will likely reach offshore waters south of Nova Scotia on Tuesday as a hurricane, and will then impact Atlantic Canada and the Gulf of St. Lawrence region as a strong post-tropical storm on Tuesday into Wednesday.

Teddy is currently a category three hurricane over the Tropical Atlantic well southeast of Bermuda. It will slowly move up during the next two days passing east of Bermuda on Monday. This is when it will begin to accelerate towards Nova Scotia. When it reaches Canadian waters south of the Maritimes it will be a category two hurricane, but is expected to be a very dangerous post-tropical storm as it moves though eastern Nova Scotia and southwestern Newfoundland.

Possible impacts:

A. Public

Rainfall could be significant, especially north and west of Teddy’s track. At this point, the highest rainfall amounts are likely for eastern Nova Scotia and the south coast of Newfoundland. Most regions will see some tropical storm force winds, and south of the forecast track winds may reach hurricane force. Power outages are are likely due to breaking branches and possible tree falls, especially due to trees still having their full foliage. Every effort should be made to secure temporary structures.

B. Marine

As hurricane Teddy moves into our waters, there is a reasonable chance of hurricane force winds near and south of the track, mainly over the southern Atlantic forecast waters. There will also be large waves, again mainly over southern waters.

C. Surge/Waves

Large waves will build over southern marine waters Tuesday, and will break higher along the Atlantic coast of Nova Scotia and the south coast of Newfoundland where rough and pounding surf is expected. Storm surge is possible, mainly for parts of the Atlantic Coast of Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, the Magdalen Islands and the south coast of Newfoundland, but it is too early to be specific about which portions of the coastline may be affected.
