The southern half of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and Prince Edward Island could see 50 to 75 mm of rain with higher amounts possible locally. Elsewhere in Nova Scotia and Newfoundland, rainfall amounts will range from 10 to 20 mm.
Some coastal areas may see high surf and moderate waves. Some coastal damage is possible.
