Confidence is now high based on current observations and modeling that Leslie will miss the Maritimes, but as the cold front coming in from the west interacts with Leslie on Tuesday there will likely be an increase in rain for a few hours over Nova Scotia.
Currently, Leslie is getting sheared, but that is expected top diminish over the next day or two before increasing again after that.
I looks like a second piece of energy rounding the base of a large trof will almost capture Leslie sometime Tuesday and draw the center northward for a time into southeastern Newfoundland as a minimal category 1 hurricane.
There are some models that also keep the storm center offshore as they show less phasing with the hurricane and the approaching trof.
I will continue to monitor the latest trends through the weekend and keep you posted.
Update on major eastern storm into the weekend.
Major storm system will bring heavy rain, followed by strong winds, falling temperatures and possible high elevation snow into this weekend over the East.
The 2016/2017 winter forecast for Canada has a snowy look for many.
Early November not looking all that cold, but that could change quickly later in the month.
Update on the two major storm systems approaching the West coast for late this week.
Two significant storms will bring widespread, heavy rain and strong winds to southwest British Columbia later Thursday and again late Saturday.
