Could Earl Impact Newfoundland?


There is no shortage of tropical activity in the Atlantic Ocean. The only storm that could pose a threat to Newfoundland at this time is Hurricane Earl.


The latest track from the National Hurricane Center puts the eastern Avalon Peninsula just on the edge of the cone of uncertainty.


At this time no model is showing a direct impact but the Canadian GDPS does indicate rain and wind for the Avalon Peninsula on Sunday. There is no indication that we will see overly strong winds but some gusty winds are possible and we could see some heavy rain, that is if this scenario plays out. We could end up seeing nothing.


Included is a spaghetti plot map that shows the possible tracks. It is important to note that this is in no way a warning to be prepared but we could see some impacts from Earl. Models have been trending farther west over the past couple of days.

Keep checking back for updates.
