Canada's east coast could be in for some wet and wild weather next week, as the Hurricane Isaias track has stretched to the lower corner of Nova Scotia and New Brunswick.

By the time the storm makes its way north, the Canadian Hurricane Centre is forecasting that it will have downgraded to a tropical storm. However, they still want people to stay up to date with the latest information.

People are encouraged to keep an eye on the forecasts over the coming days.

In an email to Narcity, the organization said that they are closely monitoring the evolution of Hurricane Isaias.

Despite the condition of the storm being downgraded by the time it arrives in the Maritimes, wind speeds are still predicted to reach a maximum of 100 km/h.

The country's east coast was expected to see a more active-than-normal hurricane season this year.

Working from predictions made by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, there could be anywhere from 13 to 19 named storms this year.
