Trop­i­cal storm Claudette may im­pact Cape Bre­ton

Cape Breton Post - - HOT ONLINE - SYD­NEY

Trop­i­cal storm Claudette is ex­pected to be a weak post-trop­i­cal sys­tem when it makes its way to Cape Bre­ton early Wed­nes­day.

Ac­cord­ing to a state­ment is­sued by the Cana­dian Hur­ri­cane Cen­tre, the trop­i­cal storm formed sud­denly south­west of Nova Sco­tia from a sub-trop­i­cal dis­tur­bance.

Fore­cast­ers be­lieve it will move north­east to lie near Sable Is­land by tonight and may brush Cape Bre­ton or move on­shore early Wed­nes­day as a weak post­trop­i­cal sys­tem. Then it is ex- pected to move into south­west­ern New­found­land and dis­si­pate.

No ma­jor wind im­pacts are ex­pected from the sys­tem as the gale force winds are ex­pected to re­main off­shore. Pe­ri­ods of rain are ex­pected to start late to­day over parts of Cape Bre­ton but fore­cast­ers say it is too early to es­ti­mate ex­act amounts. They noted that another low ap­proach­ing in the wake of Claudette may ac­tu­ally give higher amounts.
