The Latest on post-tropical storm Lee's impact on Atlantic Canada

Post-tropical storm Lee is churning towards Nova Scotia and New Brunswick, bringing high winds, heavy rains and power outages in its wake. Here are the latest developments. All times Atlantic unless otherwise noted:

1:30 p.m.

An Environment Canada meteorologist says post-tropical storm Lee may make landfall farther west than initially anticipated.

Jill Maepea says the storm’s centre was expected to hit somewhere along southwestern Nova Scotia later this afternoon.

But she says there is some speculation that its path may arc further west and the storm may cross the Bay of Fundy to land in southern New Brunswick.

Maepea says that as of about noon Atlantic time, Lee was approximately 90 kilometres southwest of Yarmouth, N.S., travelling across the ocean at a speed of about 41 kilometres per hour.
