"An intense and dangerous Nor'easter is forecast to impact Atlantic Canada midweek with heavy amounts of precipitation, very strong and damaging winds and pounding surf/storm surge," Vaswani says. "Wind-related impacts will be the greatest effect of this Nor’easter. Models consistently indicating rapid cyclogensis (deepening of the low) leading to dangerous winds combined with heavy snowfall. Blizzard conditions likely for portions of Atlantic Canada Wednesday through Friday morning."
Coastal flooding could also be an issue with sea ice being pushed onshore. "Power outages are possible as well as the wind field with this system is extensive," warns Vaswani.
"This is likely the most powerful storm of the winter/spring 2013-2014 season and if this were summer, we would likely be identifying this system as a Tropical Storm."
I don't buy a slice of bread and one egg everyday for groceries. It's only going to be dirty for a day/night and that will be it
Updated from the weather network,my area to get 40+ cm snow,and hurricane force winds of 120km. Good grief. Feel sorry for the folks in Newfoundland expecting 160km winds. No worries,I see Nova Scotia Power is all set to deal with the power outages...* blows raspberries.
