Tropical storm Gabrielle, which has formed again in the Atlantic, is approaching Bermuda and could have an impact on Nova Scotia and Newfoundland late this week or weekend.
Officials with the Canadian Hurricane Centre say Prince Edward Island will see rain. However, at this point it appears the majority of the storm's impact will be felt in Nova Scotia and Newfoundland.
The storm’s maximum sustained winds early today were near 65 kilometres an hour with some strengthening forecast over the next two days.
The hurricane centre says the storm is expected to accelerate toward Nova Scotia or Newfoundland on Friday, but it doesn’t have details yet on the storm’s potential impact.
It expects to release more information in an update later today after analyzing computer models of the storm.
The U.S. National Hurricane Centre has issued a tropical storm warning for Bermuda, where Gabrielle is expected to bring a storm surge of 60 to 80 centimetres above normal tide levels.
