Wind warnings are in effect for the Atlantic coast of mainland Nova Scotia for Tuesday, when the winds are expected to reach 90 km/h during the day.

The storm lingered near Bermuda on Sunday as a Category 2 hurricane, and is expected to move north on Monday and accelerate toward Nova Scotia, according to Environment Canada.

"Exactly when that occurs and where it occurs is all going to dictate where the centre of Teddy actually goes", he said.

The centre of Teddy will pass east o Bermuda today and then approach Nova Scotia late Tuesday or early Wednesday.

Environment Canada is predicting power outages and wind gusts of up to 100 km/h along exposed areas of the Atlantic coasts.

"The storm is then expected to become a very unsafe post-tropical storm as it moves through eastern Nova Scotia and southwestern Newfoundland Tuesday night and Wednesday", said the special weather statement.

Gusty winds with some rainfall will also impact eastern ME as Teddy moves into Canada.

A tropical storm warning is now in effect for Bermuda.

Once a major Category 3 hurricane, Teddy is slowly losing strength as it nears the Atlantic provinces, on a track over cooler waters. Maximum wave heights are expected to reach seven to nine metres from Shelburne County east to Guysborough.

In the Halifax area, high tide will come at noon on Tuesday and peak again at midnight.

Those high winds could damage buildings, including roof shingles and windows. "The current high surf conditions and the conditions today and tomorrow are unsafe and life-threatening to swimmers, and as such there will be no lifeguards on duty", Ming said.

"All of that area is still on the table in terms of the track of the storm", Robichaud said.

Tropical storm watches are now in effect for Atlantic coastal regions of Nova Scotia including Halifax. Waves increase in height Tuesday.

Tropical Storm Beta is almost stationary but is expected to begin moving towards Texas later on Sunday.

As of 8AM on Monday (9/21/20), Hurricane Teddy remains a powerful Category 2 storm with sustained winds of 100 mph and is about 160 miles southeast of Bermuda, according to orlandosentinel.com.

A couple of different factors will impact the direction of the storm, Robichaud said.
