Better late than never... here is the final breakdown on Post Tropical Storm Leslie.

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.
