  • Tropical Storm Could Bring Rough Weather to NL

    The province is looking at some rocky weather later this week as tropical storm Chris makes it way from the Eastern United States.

    Chris is currently formed off the coast of North Carolina, and as the system moves east it could become a hurricane before the end of the day.

    PAL Airlines and Aerospace Meterologist Brian Walsh says it looks like a weakened system will move through the island on Friday.

    He says it will likely bring some rain and gusts of 60-70 km/h to southern Newfoundland, but the big thing to watch out for are large waves created by the strong offshore winds.

    Walsh says the potential for flooding on the south coast depends on when the storm passes and whether it coincides with high tide. If the centre of the system passes during high tide there is the possibility for some storm surge.
