Satellite Shot of this storm this morning.

Strong winds started at dawn but so far only a few spits of rain. 1. Cape Cod; 2. Nova Scotia. Notice the broad front of this storm which has moved in more slowly than first forecast.

Here is the local word: "Basically, we're looking for it to reach the coast of Nova Scotia late Saturday evening," said Peter Bowyer, program manager of the Canadian Hurricane Centre in Darmouth.

"The winds and the rain will start moving into Nova Scotia long before that in the southwestern Maritimes (i.e. Lunenburg)... with conditions deteriorating throughout the day."

"We do expect there to be some significant ocean wave action along the Atlantic coast of Nova Scotia, probably eight to 10 metres, meaning individual wave heights can be upwards of twice that."
