For Tropical Storm Hermine.
Tropical Storm Hermine is currently located just north of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, and is expected to move offshore near noon today.
Hermine is still expected to stall along the east coast of the United States late Sunday or early Monday morning. It will remain offshore, east of New Jersey and south of Long Island, until at least mid-week next week, and should remain outside of Canadian waters until then.
At this time, Hermine is not expected to have a direct impact on Canadian territory over 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 Sunday.
Please continue to monitor alerts issued by the Canadian Hurricane Centre and forecasts issued by Environment Canada.
