Better late than never... here is the final breakdown on Post Tropical
After stalling for days and days South of Bermuda, Leslie finally began her
track Northward when a frontal trough began to move off of the Eastern Seaboard on the 8th/9th/10th.
That trough helped pull Leslie Northward into Atlantic Canada and also tapped
into Leslie's moisture. As a result the trough dropped huge amounts of Rain over
the Maritimes and then Western Newfoundland. The 2 systems continued to merge
Monday into Tuesday as the Storm rolled into Newfoundland. Have another look
with the Satellite/Radar below.
Again, Leslie made landall on Tuesday morning, around 8:30 am near Fortune as a Category 1 Hurricane strength, Post Tropical Storm. The storm departed the Island near Deadman's Bay around 12:30 pm.
Here are the final numbers from the Storm & trough combination.
