As the forecast graphic above depicts, the areas colored in blue on the south coast of Newfoundland are under a Tropical Storm Warning. With this storm likely being in the Tropical Storm range of severity when it hits the province, we can expect damaging winds gusting between 63 and 117 km/h, torrential rains, and a dangerous storm surge for those living in the coastal regions.
Furthermore, Hurricane Teddy is expected to track to the great northern peninsula portion of Newfoundland, as well as the coastal, and inland Labrador by the early morning hours of Thursday.
