HALIFAX - Arthur has now been downgraded from a hurricane to a post tropical storm as southwestern Nova Scotia begins to feel its effects this morning.

Stephen Hatt, a meteorologist with the Canadian Hurricane Centre, says wind gusts of 90 to 100 kilometres per hour have already been reported in the Yarmouth area.

Hatt says a tropical storm warning is in effect for all of Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island, as well as eastern and southern New Brunswick, which are expecting 100- to- 150 millimetres of rain — enough to cause localized flooding.

As the storm continues to track in a northeast direction, Hatt says the blustery, wet conditions will last about 12 to 18 hours in any given location.

He says strong wave action is also expected later today, but no significant storm surge.
