Offshore storm will serve up significant sea swells

As Hurricane Epsilon tracks well offshore, wave action will be amplified off our Atlantic coastlines. Wave heights could be as high as 3.5 metres at high tide along Nova Scotia's Atlantic coast Saturday afternoon; close to 4 metres in the Avalon Channel and 4 to 5 metres along the south coast of the Avalon at sunrise Sunday. Stay back and stay safe.
