How Will Hurricane Teddy Impact Atlantic Canada?

Over the past twelve hours or so the track for Hurricane Teddy has meandered to align with northern Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, and Newfoundland.

It is likely that when Teddy enters Canadian waters, it will have transitioned to a post-tropical storm. The maximum sustained winds on Tuesday will likely be around 150 km/h with gusts to 180 km/h. By Wednesday maximum sustained winds will have weakened to around 90 km/h with gusts to 150 km/h.

Since the track has changed so drastically, it is still too early to provide specific rainfall and wind gusts expected for specific regions.

The GFS model takes Teddy parallel to the coast of Nova Scotia and then over western and central Newfoundland. The Canadian GDPS model keeps Teddy out to sea longer before taking a northwest track hitting central and northern Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island and moving through the Gulf of St Lawrence from there. European models want to take Teddy across Cape Breton and then through western and central Newfoundland.

Since there is no model consensus this time, the track may continue to fluctuate.

Keep checking back for updates.

There is a tropical cyclone information statement for Burgeo - Ramea, Burin Peninsula, Channel-Port aux Basques and vicinity, and Connaigre in Newfoundland. All of Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island, and for Îles-de-la-Madeleine in Quebec.
