Environment Canada says the storm will steer clear of Nova Scotia and veer toward Newfoundland before it is downgraded to a post-tropical storm late Thursday.

"In 2014, ex-hurricane Bertha brought a wet and windy August, but the next month ex-hurricane Cristobal flipped the switch to a hot and sunny September". Tropical storm force winds stretched outward up to 175 miles from its center.

She said that ex-hurricanes like Chris happen regularly.

"Eastern Newfoundland, specifically the Avalon Peninsula, seems to be the area we're going to pay a lot of attention to over the next couple of days with the forecast", said Hubbard.

There will still be isolated afternoon showers and storms each afternoon through the weekend, but all in all, any rain that falls won't last long.

Met Office spokeswoman Nicola Maxey said that tropical storm Chris "will influence the weather but we can not tell what that influence will be at the moment because it is still developing".
