Tropical Cyclone Information Statements
WOCN31 CWHX 120545
Tropical cyclone information statement updated by the Canadian
Hurricane Centre of Environment Canada
At 2:45 AM ADT Thursday 12 September 2013
---------------------------------------------------------------------
Tropical cyclone information statement for:
Newfoundland
Nova Scotia
Prince Edward Island
Quebec maritime.

For tropical depression Gabrielle.

The next statement will be issued by 9:00 AM ADT.

Gabrielle currently northwest of Bermuda: will interact with
Frontal system and bring heavy rain to parts of the Maritimes
And Newfoundland Friday into Saturday.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
==discussion==
1. Summary of basic information at 3.00 AM ADT.

Location: near 33.0 north 67.2 west, or about 250 kilometres
west-northwest of Bermuda.

Maximum sustained winds: 55 km/h.

Present movement: northwest at 9 km/h.

Minimum central pressure: 1010 MB.

2. Public weather impacts and warnings summary.

Gabrielle is currently located west of Bermuda and continues to
Drift northwestward. This feature will start accelerating northward
today before it begins interacting with a cold frontal trough which
extends from Western Newfoundland to New Brunswick to New England.
This frontal system - completely separate from Gabrielle - will
likely give localized heavy rainfall to parts of New Brunswick
Again today.

As Gabrielle moves northward later today, its tropical moisture
Is expected to be drawn toward this frontal system in the form of a
second area of heavy rain which could reach the south shore of
Nova Scotia Friday morning. The rain is expected to spread to the
rest of the Atlantic coast, Eastern Nova Scotia, PEI and Western
Newfoundland later in the day. While computer guidance is unanimous
on showing this interaction, there are still some differences
Between the models regarding rainfall amounts and its location. That
said, it is likely that rainfall warnings will be required for some
of these forementioned areas once the scenario becomes clearer.

Tropical storm Gabrielle is not expected to intensify today.
In fact the main circulation of the low itself has become separated
from the convective cloud that is required to fully sustain such
tropical feature. The remaining circulation will likely clip Eastern
Cape Breton late Friday then move into Southern Newfoundland by
Saturday morning. The original storm center may be barely
Discernable at that time as its energy will have become absorbed
Into the frontal system.

A. Wind.

As previously mentioned, most of Gabrielle's moisture and energy are
expected to be drawn into the pre-existing frontal system over the
Maritimes, which itself will give a blustery day to many regions.
Any direct winds from the remaining circulation of Gabrielle could
enhance the winds just to the east of the track over Eastern Cape
Breton and Southern Newfoundland, but at this time seem unlikely to
reach wind warning criteria (90+ km/h).

B. Rainfall.

See first section above for description of the complicated
interaction expected between the tropical moisture from Gabrielle and
the frontal system approaching from the west. Rainfall warnings if
required could be issued this afternoon once the scenario becomes
clearer.

C. Surge/waves.

Given the expected strength of Gabrielle and current tidal cycle over
the region, significant storm surge is not expected. Some heavier
surf is possible over Eastern Cape Breton and Southern Newfoundland
with the passage of Gabrielle's remaining circulation Friday night
and Saturday.

3. Marine weather impacts and warnings summary.

Gale force winds will likely develop ahead of Gabrielle over southern
maritime waters early on Friday, then spread to eastern waters during
the day and to Newfoundland waters late Friday into Saturday.
The strongest winds will likely occur just east of the remaining
circulation of Gabrielle when it crosses Maritimes and Newfoundland
waters later on Friday and early Saturday morning.

Wave model guidance currently shows significant wave heights up to 6
meters are possible when Gabrielle enters Canadian waters on Friday.

Tropical Cyclone Information Statement

From Environment Canada:

WOCN31 CWHX 110545
Tropical cyclone information statement updated by the Canadian
Hurricane Centre of Environment Canada
At 2:47 AM ADT Wednesday 11 September 2013
---------------------------------------------------------------------
Tropical cyclone information statement for:
=new= Quebec maritime
Newfoundland
Nova Scotia
Prince Edward Island.

For tropical storm Gabrielle.

The next statement will be issued by 9:00 AM ADT.

Tropical storm Gabrielle near Bermuda - direct or
Remnant effects expected during the period Friday to Saturday.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
==discussion==
1. Summary of basic information at 3.00 AM ADT.

Location: 32.0 north 65.0 west about 50 kilometres southwest of
Bermuda.

Maximum sustained winds: 93 km/h.

Present movement: north at 13 km/h.

Minimum central pressure: 1004 MB.

2. Public weather impacts and warnings summary.

Tropical storm Gabrielle redeveloped early Tuesday after spending
4-and-a-half days drifting northward as a weak tropical low. The
storm is expected to remain in a moderate 'wind shear' environment
which in the short term may limit or even supress any
intensification. Sometimes 'sheared' storms can dissipate quickly or
even intensify rapidly - there is low scientific skill in predicting
intensity change in systems like this. Most computer models keep it
going as a 45-50 knots tropical storm for the next two days and then
push it or its remnants toward Nova Scotia and Newfoundland on
Friday. Models are unanimous in their prediction of a cold front
moving into the maritime provinces Friday morning. The merging of
fronts with tropical moisture or tropical storms, in general,
Is often results in a heavy rainfall event.

Given the current expectation of a track just east of Cape Breton,
heavy rain could be an issue over Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island
and Îles-de-la-Madeleine. Newfoundland is currently expected to be
On the 'warmer' and 'windier' side of the track, but this predicted
picture could easily shift, so please stay tuned to forecast updates
to establish a sense of how the forecast is changing.

New Brunswick will likely receive heavy rainfall today and Thursday
but it is not associated with moisture from Gabrielle.

A. Wind.

Much too early to quote wind speeds. By Thursday morning we will have
an idea of what to expect in terms of wind. At this point it appears
that Newfoundland would have a higher chance of windy conditions.

B. Rainfall.

Much too early to quote rainfall amounts. By Thursday morning we will
have an idea of what to expect in terms of amounts. Fronts merging
with tropical moisture/storms can certainly lead to flooding
rainfalls. This must be kept in mind especially for areas west of the
track (which at this time includes Nova Scotia, pei,
Îles-de-la-Madeleine and Western Newfoundland).

C. Surge/waves.

Too early to estimate magnitude. We will have an idea of wave heights
late Wednesday or Thursday morning.

3. Marine weather impacts and warnings summary.

If the storm persists and develops further, highest waves and winds
would be over southeastern maritime and most Newfoundland waters.
Too early to predict details though.
