Tropical storm Cristobal is forecast to remain far offshore as it head northeast later this week.

 

The third named storm of Atlantic hurricane season formed in the Caribbean on the weekend.

Tropical Storm Cristobal was expected to turn into a hurricane but remain far offshore as it heads northeast later this week. The storm’s projected path takes it hundreds of miles east of Nova Scotia by Friday.

The province was already slammed by the first named storm of the season. Across the Maritimes, post tropical storm Arthur knocked over thousands of trees onto roofs and power lines in July.
