It is likely that the southern coast of Newfoundland, eastern Nova Scotia, and eastern New Brunswick will see heavy rain with over 30 mm possible.

Elsewhere rainfall amounts may top out around 15 mm.

A nor'easter is an extratropical cyclone. The name derives from the direction of the winds that blow from the northeast.
