Environment Canada has issued special weather statements for New Brunswick and rainfall/wind warnings for Nova Scotia and Newfoundland ahead of a strong low pressure system moving up the Eastern Seaboard.

The late summer/early fall storm is not a hurricane or tropical storm but will bring lots of rain and strong winds to the region overnight and tomorrow.

Greater Moncton can expect anywhere from 25-40 mm of rain and wind gusts from 60-80 km/h.

Parts of mainland Nova Scotia and Cape Breton could see 50-70 mm of rain and winds gusting up to 90 km/h while Newfoundland could see gusts up to 120 km/h.
