Key messages for Fiona can be found in the Tropical Cyclone Discussion under AWIPS header MIATCDAT2 and WMO header WTNT42 KNHC and on the web at hurricanes.gov/text/MIATCDAT2.shtml.

WIND: Gale-force and storm-force winds are expected to continue across portions of Atlantic Canada through early Sunday.

RAINFALL: Fiona is forecast to produce 1 to 2 inches (25 to 50 mm) of rainfall across portions of Atlantic Canada, with storm total maxima as high as 10 inches (250 mm) across Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, and western Newfoundland. Flooding is expected, some of which could be significant.

STORM SURGE: A dangerous storm surge is expected to produce coastal flooding in portions of Atlantic Canada in areas of onshore winds. Near the coast, the surge will be accompanied by large and destructive waves.

SURF: Swells generated by Fiona are affecting Atlantic Canada, the northeastern United States coast, and Bermuda. The swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions. Please consult products from your local weather office.
