Gabrielle will affect part of Atlantic Canada with drenching rain and gusty wind before the week comes to a close.
Although Gabrielle became a tropical storm for the third in its life Thursday midday, the system was downgraded to a tropical depression early on Friday and will continue to unwind Friday night.
Gabrielle is expected to curve gradually to the northeast as it tours part of Atlantic Canada this weekend.
A cool front still pushing the Eastern U.S. will keep the tropical system far enough east to have no impacts on the United States.
The main threat from Gabrielle will be heavy rain.
According to AccuWeather.com Canada Weather Specialist Brett Anderson, "The heaviest rainfall, likely 25-50 mm, will run along and just west of the track up through eastern Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and western Newfoundland."
In addition to the heavy rainfall, Gabrielle will also bring winds of tropical storm force to the region that could bring down trees and lead to power outages.
"At this point, it looks like tropical storm-force winds could impact Cape Breton then the south coast of Newfoundland late Friday and Friday night." Anderson said.
By Saturday, interactions with land and the sweeping energy of the cold front will likely cause Gabrielle to lose tropical characteristics. However, the system may still bring some more rainfall to part of Labrador before it travels over the cold waters of the northern Atlantic Ocean.
