At 8:00 PM EDT (00:00 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Earl (07L) was located near latitude 49.4 North, longitude 60.4 West. Part of the system is visible in the main image, north of New York’s Long Island and Cape Cod, Massachusetts. In the full image, much more of the storm is visible, obscuring most of the Canadian terrain below, while the eastern seaboard of the USA can be observed to the south.

Earl is moving toward the north-northeast near 45 mph (75 km/hr). This motion will bring Earl across extreme southeastern Quebec and Newfoundland tonight.

Maximum sustained winds are near 65 mph (100 km/hr) with higher gusts. Earl is forecast to become post-tropical tonight.
Tropical storm force winds extend outward up to 250 miles (400 km) from the center. Estimated minimum central pressure is 966 mb (28.53 inches).

Hazards affecting land include winds and rainfall. Tropical storm conditions are still occurring over extreme eastern Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island. These conditions will spread over western Newfoundland tonight. Rains associated with Earl should decrease tonight over the region.
