As Canadians we talk about the weather relentlessly, I just talk about it a little more! I hope to provide useful information to my family, friends and all those who simply enjoy talking about the weather. While I try to include information of interest from all over North America, my primary region of concern is the St. Lawrence Valley of Quebec, Ontario, and New York, as well as our neighbouring regions. This Blog is dedicated to my late father for inspiring my interest in weather.

Tropical Storm Andrea
Forecast path of Andrea from Florida up into North Carolina and beyond into Nova Scotia.
Tropical storm Andrea has developed in the Gulf of Mexico and is heading for south Florida. The storm has 60 mph winds, but she will mainly be a big rain maker with a few tornadoes over Florida and the Carolinas. Rainfall amounts in excess of 5 inches are possible in south Florida with 3-5 inches along the path from Florida to the Outer Banks. Further north heavy rain will move into New York and southern New England and here on the Seacoast of New Hampshire by late Friday as the storm becomes non tropical in nature. From 1-3 inches is likely here with some rough surf but only 15-25mph winds here. Interior New England and southern Quebec will remain on the west side of the remains of Andrea with clouds but little else. Any rain in Montreal will be from low pressure moving from the Great Lakes east. The storm will bring heavy rain to Nova Scotia by Saturday with warnings possible.
