Rumour has it, Nova Scotia is in for a wet and windy weekend, but News 95.7’s meteorologist Richard Zurawski said despite its soon-to-be Category Four status, Hurricane Gonzalo likely won’t be making much of an appearance in our province.
“It’s going to go through the southern Grand Bank waters and then move off into the Avalon Peninsula sometime on Saturday, but it’s certainly not going to be affecting us.”
Zurawski said we may see some wind and rain on Friday, but other than that, just some humidity over the next few days.
“It’s drawing in this extremely warm, humid weather with another low-pressure system, the major low-pressure system off to the north.”
This is the first hurricane since Arthur hit the region as a post-tropical storm in early July — but Zurawski said we won’t feel the effects of Gonzalo nearly as much.
“It looks like it’s going to stick around until at least Saturday, and possibly into Sunday and then gradually taper off,” he said. “But it looks like the milder temperatures, above-normal temperatures are probably going to be sticking around.”
