Tropical storm Henri won’t make landfall, but Newfoundland could get heavy rain

HALIFAX — The Canadian Hurricane Centre says tropical storm Henri does not pose a threat to land, but parts of Newfoundland could receive heavy rain on Saturday.

The centre says the storm will likely stay offshore, but southeastern Newfoundland could receive up to 50 millimetres Saturday morning.

However, the centre says there’s a possibility Henri will dissipate as it moves away from the warm Gulf Stream waters, which would result in very little impact in Atlantic Canada.

Henri was about 535 kilometres northwest of Bermuda early Friday, with maximum sustained winds of 65 kilometres an hour.
