Tropical Storm Claudette to skip US drench parts of Canada: Tropical Storm Claudette, Tropical Storm Claudette will track well east of the Northeastern United States on Tuesday but will track over Newfoundland, Canada, as it weakens on Wednesday.
Tropical Storm Claudette overcame strong winds aloft and developed over the warm waters of the Gulf Stream on Monday. The storm was located about 285 miles south-southeast of Nantucket, Massachusetts, at the time. Claudette joined tropical storms Ana and Bill from earlier in the season.
As of the midday hours Tuesday, Claudette was located about 300 miles south of Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, and 730 miles southwest of St. John’s, Newfoundland. Claudette was racing northeastward at about 20 mph.
While steering winds will take the system rapidly off to the northeast through midweek, the system has become strong enough to cause seas to build offshore.
Surf will build somewhat along the eastern New England and southeastern Nova Scotia coasts into Tuesday evening. More substantial wave action will occur in southern Newfoundland into Wednesday.
During the balance of the week, lingering disturbed weather off the eastern U.S. coast will cause surf to build from the Carolinas to New England. Bathers should be alert for frequent and strong rip currents.
According to AccuWeather Hurricane Expert Dan Kottlowski, “The system will gradually weaken as it moves over colder waters through Wednesday.”
Some rain, locally gusty winds and rough seas will affect Newfoundland on Wednesday. By then, Claudette will be a tropical depression or tropical rainstorm.
