Northeasterly winds gusting past 100 km/h, rain, snow, and high surf will hammer Atlantic Canada just a week after a powerful storm caused widespread flooding in the Maritimes.
A nor'easter will intensify and arrive off the coast of Nova Scotia on Monday evening.
Newfoundland will begin feeling the effects of this low pressure system late Monday or early Tuesday.
“This nor'easter is special because of the recent storm in the Maritimes. A lot of areas are still dealing with recovery from recent floods and wind damage,” says Dayna Vettese, a meteorologist at The Weather Network.
“This particular nor'easter will be more potent with respect to the winds. The winds will be the main concern.”
Vettese says the type of precipitation will depend on the exact track of the storm, but the nor'easter is expected to soak the Maritime provinces and Newfoundland.
“This is a busy time for holiday preparations and this nor'easter will cause a mess on the roads because of the wind, rain and snow,” she says.
