Tropical Cyclone Information StatementIssued at 15:17 Sunday 20 June 2021
For Tropical Depression Claudette.
The next information statement is expected at 9:00 am Monday.
Tropical Depression Claudette may affect Atlantic Canada Tuesday and Tuesday night.
Tropical Depression Claudette is moving slowly northeastward over the southeastern US today and tonight. Despite being over land for a while and fairly high central pressure, it is expected to move back over the ocean intact and regain Tropical Storm intensity off the Carolinas. The system is expected to track south of Nova Scotia and any remaining winds will be well offshore. There is also a possibility the low could simply weaken to a basic trough of low pressure by Tuesday, at which point the CHC would end messages. Regardless, Nova Scotia and then Newfoundland may see some heavy downpours on Tuesday and Tuesday night while gale-force winds would likely occur over southern Canadian waters .
