The system is moving toward the northeast at 25 mph. Hurricane warnings have been issued for parts of Canada. Dorian will track close enough to bring a period of rain and some tropical storm-force winds to southeastern New England Saturday morning before it quickly races toward parts of Nova Scotia and Newfoundland later Saturday.
Dorian is expected to strike Nova Scotia as either a hurricane or a strong ocean storm with hurricane-force winds by Saturday afternoon. Dorian’s remnant low will then sweep into Newfoundland Saturday night, spreading strong winds up to hurricane-force, storm surge and rain.
Dorian will move east-northeastward and is expected to lose its tropical characteristics by early Sunday. Heavy rain and strong winds will continue in parts of Newfoundland and Labrador.
Clients are advised to check the status of their flight(s) prior to departure.
