QUOTE
An area of low pressure moving northeast towards Newfoundland and bringing high winds left tens of thousands of people in Nova Scotia in the dark Monday.

Most of the outages are in the Halifax region.

As of 8 a.m. AT, more than 25,000 Nova Scotia Power customers were in the dark. At its peak, more than 50,000 NSP customers were left without power.

The outages and high winds have prompted the cancellation of Marine Atlantic ferries Monday between Newfoundland and Nova Scotia. Also, there are several school closures in the Halifax region and in the Strait region.

Strong winds of up to 90 km/h in parts of eastern mainland Nova Scotia and Cape Breton, and up to 120 km/h for much of Newfoundland, have prompted warnings from Environment Canada.

Not sure this would be classed as a noreaster Shane, winds are Southerly pumped from the tropics it's more of an unnamed tropical system.

Winds are starting to pick up here now, we wont get much rain, might see a few downed trees and outages if we get into the 90+kmh range later on.

Ya thats true it just had a nor easter look to it wink.gif and it was not a tropical system it lacked tropical characteristic it was just a hybrid system with tropical moisture

A true tropical storm has to have symmetric warm core to be considered tropical , no fronts or elongation of clouds which this one does .

Oh I know it's not a true tropical storm just seemed like one, it bought us the strongest winds since April (89kmh peak gust) and very humid overnight it didn't really dip below 20c with humidex mid-high 20's all night, very warm!
