Tracking the Tropics: A non-tropical area of low pressure is located south of Halifax, Nova Scotia. It is producing strong winds and heavy rain from the NE U.S. into Canada. The low is forecast to turn SE into slightly warmer water in a few days. It could acquire some subtropical characteristics over the weekend as it moves over the central Atlantic.
