It will be a wet and windy day for Nova Scotians on Thursday.
It will particularly windy along the Atlantic Coast, meteorologist Cindy Day says, who says the system isn't a weather bomb or nor' easter.
"There's wind and there's rain, but it's not a lot more than that," she said. "There will some very strong wind gusts along the Atlantic Coast, but in terms of rain we're not talking about excessive rainfall."
The rain should start just before sunrise in Yarmouth, Digby and Shelburne counties, reaching the central regions between 8 a.m. and 9 a.m., the Eastern Shore by the afternoon and Cape Breton by late afternoon or early evening.
The strongest winds should occur around the lunch hour into mid-afternoon, form the east and then become southeasterly.
"There could be gusts up to 100 km/h in Yarmouth and Shelburne counties, and 80 km/h in the Halifax region," Day said. "Inland the gusts will probably be up to 60 km/h."
Rain will be heaviest in the west and central regions, with 30 mm to 40 mm, with the rest of the province getting 20 mm to 30 mm.
Day said the heaviest winds will last two or three hours, and could result in power outages and unsecured items being blown around.
The weather isn't connected to a a tropical storm, but is two systems coming together. The northern part is the system that blanketed Manitoba in snow, and will meet with a developing low pressure system off the eastern seaboard.
