The 2006 Nova Scotia tropical storm was a short-lived tropical cyclone that was unnamed operationally during the season but was recognized during post-season analysis and designated AL022006. The second tropical storm of the 2006 Atlantic hurricane season, the system developed as an extratropical cyclone to the southeast of Nantucket, Massachusetts, on July 16 from a dissipating cold front. It tracked northeastward over warm water temperatures, and on July 17 transitioned into a tropical storm after an area of convection developed over the center. The storm quickly reached peak winds of 50 mph (85 km/h) before encountering cooler waters and weakening. On July 18, it degenerated into a non-convective remnant low, and after crossing Newfoundland it dissipated on July 19. Impact in Canada was minimal, and no deaths were reported.
... The storm greatly weakened prior to moving across Newfoundland, and as a result impact was minimal ... No official forecasts were issued for the system however the Atlantic Storm Prediction Centre issued marine gale warnings for the storm ... review, the National Hurricane Center occasionally identifies a previously undesignated tropical or subtropical cyclone based on new data or meteorological interpretation ...
Famous quotes containing the words tropical, storm and/or nova:
“Physical force has no value, where there is nothing else. Snow in snow-banks, fire in volcanoes and solfataras is cheap. The luxury of ice is in tropical countries, and midsummer days. The luxury of fire is, to have a little on our hearth; and of electricity, not the volleys of the charged cloud, but the manageable stream on the battery-wires. So of spirit, or energy; the rests or remains of it in the civil and moral man, are worth all the cannibals in the Pacific.”
—Ralph Waldo Emerson (18031882)
“Sin their conception, their birth weeping,
Their life a general mist of error,
Their death a hideous storm of terror.”
—John Webster (c. 15801638)
“Im a Nova Scotia bluenose. Since I was a baby, Ive been watching men look at ships. Its easy to tell the ones they like. Youre only waiting to get her into deep water, arent youbecause shes yours.”
