Tropical Cyclone Information Statement Issued For Nova Scotia By Canadian Hurricane Centre

From Environment Canada:

Tropical Storm Nicole currently north of the Bahamas will head toward Florida and possibly landfall as a category-one hurricane early Thursday. Nicole will then turn northward travelling over land (Georgia, The Carolinas) while merging with a cold front and becoming post tropical. The combined weather system is expected to track through New England early Saturday and into the Maritimes Saturday evening.

Since the storm is expected to transition to ‘post-tropical’ well to our south, it will essentially be an autumn type storm while impacting Eastern Canada. Heavy rain will likely spread well north of the low’s track into southern Quebec and perhaps even eastern Lake Ontario. Rain and wind is likely over the Maritime provinces with very mild, tropical temperatures and gusty winds south of the track and cold northeasterly winds north of it. Parts of central and eastern Quebec and eventually Newfoundland could even see some snow, so this will clearly be a non-tropical storm and this bulletin is in effect for the ‘tropical side’ of the system.
