    Yes Mr. Levi Cowan, Arthur looks a lot more impressive today, now I live in Halifax nova Scotia Canada. Now with this type of a system if it were to hit us here in Nova Scotia of course it would go through its extra tropical tran. Now the only question left is how much Arthur can ramp itself up before hitting the much colder water and what type of impact it would have on our province. We may actually receive the worst of Arthur for its life spam. The main problem for this part of the world is the trees oak, maple etc. they do not fair well in winds that above 60 mph so if by chance we get say 80 mph wind gusts that could knock out power to a large area and for quite some time. Maybe in a future presentation you can include Nova Scotia’s impacts because many of the models do show it crashing into Nova Scotia.God bless and take care friend from your bud mike from Canada, I appreciate your tropical tidbits on utube and the weather underground.

      Certainly, I will mention Arthur’s extratropical impacts on the Canadian maritimes as the time gets closer. I’m just focusing primarily on the imminent threat right now. Thanks for the comment!

    With the predicted low preasure of 966 off of the cape, is there any chance it could turn into another Sandy storm? At the beginning stages of this storm when it came off the Georgia coastline, it seemed that the circulation of the feature was large. Now the storm looks very small, like Andrew in 1992.

    • Levi says:

      Arthur will grow large as it undergoes extratropical transition after passing North Carolina, as most hurricanes do. However, the impacts of the large circulation will likely remain mostly offshore of the U.S., but Canada will have a nasty weekend coming up.

    Thanks Levi

    I have a home in DownEast Maine. I want to say the downest section really got slapped with Arthur but very little was mentioned about it. As you may know it is a very low populated area. BangorHydro, the power provider for the area, had over 10000 services down. My home was without power for 4 days. Many trees were lost but had many power poles down also and lots of flooding. Eastport and Lubec Maine had gusts over 80 mph and sustained tropical force for a good 24 hours. I have watched most of the national news channels but heard nothing about the hit. The last I heard was that the center was going to be east or over of Canadian Maritimes. The darn thing made a slight westward turn and the center passed just east of Maine in the Bay of Fundy. It was NOT A fun day.
