Tropical Storm Claudette
The third tropical system of the 2015 season formed well east of the Carolina's late Sunday. Claudette developed over the warm waters of the Gulf Stream. This morning the system is located approximately 500km south of Halifax, Nova Scotia, and moving northeast at 20mph. Claudette is expected to slowly weaken and become a post tropical cyclone later today as she heads towards the colder waters around Newfoundland on Wednesday. Gusty winds, a period of steady rain and rough seas will affect the south and east coast of Newfoundland with just some wave action expected elsewhere in eastern Atlantic Canada.
