Re: Hurricane Bill August 2009

Bermuda Feeling Effects of Bill... Nova Scotia Next?

Dangerous Category 2 Bill is currently located to the southwest of Bermuda by a couple hundred miles. The island is under a Tropical Storm Warning and also is posting a Hurricane Watch in the event that Bill edges slightly closer as it passes by. The Bermuda weather service is currently recording gusts up to 50 knts and warning the public of dangerous winds and deadly rip currents.

Meanwhile, the Canadian weather service has been closely monitoring Bill, as it's projected path at this point in time would take it right by Nova Scotia, almost paralleling the coast for a time. Bill would have encountered cooler sea surface temperatures by this point, but it is not unreasonable that areas like Halifax can expect to see tropical storm force winds at least.
