Dorian Remains on Collision Course with Atlantic Canada

Dorian remains on a collision course with Atlantic Canada.

The storm is expected to arrive in Nova Scotia, along with eastern New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island on Saturday and then Newfoundland on Sunday.

The storm is expected to be southeast of Nova Scotia and have maximum sustained winds near 150 km/h. It will move over northern sections of Nova Scotia where winds will diminish to 130 km/h.

When the storm passes over Newfoundland's west coast it will have maximum winds of 130 km/h.

Strong winds like this will likely cause some trees to be uprooted and widespread power outages.

Over 150 mm of rain is possible for some areas of eastern Prince Edward Island and Nova Scotia.

Newfoundland will see about 50 mm of rain along the west coast.

Large waves up to 10 meters high will reach the southwestern shore of Nova Scotia on Saturday. These waves will likely reach southern Newfoundland by Sunday morning. Waves near or higher than 5 metres will impact north-facing coasts of the Gulf of St. Lawrence. Rip currents are also a possibility.
