N.S. will be spared wrath of Hurricane Franklin

It looks like we will miss the worst of Hurricane Franklin.

Forecasters tracking the storm say it will peak out at sea and clear of Nova Scotia and Newfoundland.

However, our province could still see some heavy rain and big waves along the coast by mid-week.

“We could see hefty rainfall totals across many areas that simply don’t need any more rainfall this summer. Halifax has seen close to 200 per cent of its normal rainfall since June.” – The Weather Network

It looked like Franklin would make landfall in Nova Scotia early last week, but the track shifted significantly over the weekend.

Meantime, Tropical Storm Idalia has now formed and it could hit Florida as a Category 1 hurricane or something method stronger.
