Rainfall warning in effect for:

  • Halifax Metro and Halifax County West

Rain, at times heavy, is expected.

Total rainfall amount: 50 to 75 mm, possibly reaching 100 mm in areas of heaviest rain.

Locations: Lunenburg, Halifax, and Guysborough Counties

Time span: beginning late Tuesday morning and continuing into Wednesday.

Remarks: The initial rain bands ahead of Hurricane Teddy will reach the Atlantic coast of Nova Scotia late Tuesday morning. Rain will be heavy at times through the afternoon and then diminish somewhat in the evening.

A second burst of heavier rain is expected just ahead of Teddy as it approaches the coast overnight on Tuesday and into Wednesday morning.

Total amounts may exceed 50 mm by 6 a.m. Wednesday, with total rainfall possibly reaching 100 mm in areas of heaviest rain by Wednesday night. This warning is likely to be expanded with future updates.

Heavy downpours can cause flash floods and water pooling on roads. Localized flooding in low-lying areas is possible.

Rainfall warnings are issued when significant rainfall is expected.

These winds could break tree branches potentially resulting in downed utility lines. Stay away from the shore – the combination of surge and large waves could result in dangerous rip currents and the risk of being pulled out to sea.

A tropical storm warning means that tropical storm conditions (sustained winds near 65 km/h or more) are expected over parts of the region within 24 hours.

By nature, a tropical storm also implies the threat of local flooding from heavy rainfall – consult your local area forecast for possible rainfall warnings.
