Conditions over the western North Atlantic will favor rapid deepening of this low into a hurricane-force storm as it passes east of Newfoundland on Tuesday (15th) with winds increasing up to 75 knots possible. 

Heavy freezing spray conditions will be likely over the Gulf of St. Lawrence, as well as the waters near Nova Scotia as far south as 44 N and Newfoundland to 46 N.
