Colin brushes Atlantic Canada

Post-Tropical Storm Colin, 08 June 2015 (CTV/Twitter)


By the time Colin had arrived in Canadian waters earlier today, it had become a post-tropical storm – essentially a strong low pressure system.

Much of Florida had received heavy rain from Colin before the storm moved into the Atlantic Ocean and tracked northeastward.

Wind was not a factor for the Maritimes but heavy rain fell in eastern Nova Scotia, Cape Breton Island and Newfoundland.

Greater Moncton received less than 20 mm of rain between remnants of Colin and another low pressure system which was crossing New Brunswick.

Colin was the third named storm of the 2016 Atlantic Hurricane Season – after Bonnie in late May and Alex in mid-January.
