Hurricane Lee likely to impact Atlantic Canada

Hurricane Lee is about 765 km south-southwest of Bermuda and is expected to turn toward the north.

It appears increasingly likely that Lee will bring strong winds, coastal flooding, and heavy rain to parts of New England and Atlantic Canada in the coming days.

Over the next couple of days, dangerous surf and rip currents are expected along much of the east coast of the United States and Atlantic Canada.

While we are still a few days away, it appears as though Lee will make landfall somewhere between Maine and Nova Scotia. Around the time of landfall, it will likely have transitioned into a post-tropical storm. It is already becoming less organized.

Land impacts could begin as early as Saturday and last through the weekend and into Monday for some areas. There is the possibility some areas of the Maritimes, western, and southwestern Newfoundland could see over 50 mm of rain and wind gusts between 70 and 100 km/h.

It is important to note this can still change as we are a few days away from the event. You can check your local weather here.
