UPDATE: Haligonia's Skywatcher Page Is Now LIVE – The latest Hurricane Bill news, tweets and live video from Halifax, Nova Scotia.
Environment Canada is still shying away from declaring anything other than a heavy rainfall warning as of this writing. Even this close to Bill's arrival, the storm is still that unpredictable.

The question appears now to have gone from "if" to "how bad" – most local media is now reporting that we will feel the effects of Bill. Consensus puts the arrival sometime on Sunday afternoon. We should know more late in the day today.
