A 'Tropical Cyclone' Statement Has Been Issued For Nova Scotia As A Storm Heads For Canada

The weather system from North Carolina could send storms to Canada this week.

On Monday, June 14, The Weather Network noted that a new "tropical depression" has formed off the coast of North Carolina.

"It could strengthen into a tropical storm as it moves away from land," said the Network. "The system's remnants could send tropical moisture to Atlantic Canada on Wednesday."

While the weather system is only expected to bring some extra rain to Atlantic Canada, Environment Canada has issued a "tropical cyclone" statement for Nova scotia.

The system is called Tropical Depression Two and it's not expected to directly impact and land in Canada, though the Canadian Hurricane Centre is closely monitoring it.

According to The Weather Network, "The region could see 10-20 mm of rain over the next couple of days, but the track of the tropical system could bring higher amounts for eastern Newfoundland as the tropical moisture is forecast to be just onshore."
