For Tropical Storm Hermine.
Tropical Storm Hermine is expected to intensify to hurricane strength prior to landfall on the Florida panhandle tonight.
Hermine is expected to stall near United States east coast, well south of Canadian territory this weekend. At this time, Hermine is not expected to have a direct impact on Canadian territory over most of the Labour Day weekend. However, some potential impacts are possible next week. The public is urged to monitor the progress of Hermine over the weekend for any significant changes to the forecast.
The Canadian Hurricane Centre continues to monitor this storm closely and will update this information bulletin on Friday.
Please continue to monitor alerts issued by the Canadian Hurricane Centre and forecasts issued by Environment Canada.
