Interesting plot of the geographical distribution of tropical cyclone tracks around NS from 1946 to 1975. I’ve never seen one like this before (and I’ve seen a lot of plots by now). It also seems like Nova Scotia is getting many more tropical storms now than they used to, based on no evidence other than a comparison between my own experience living there and this plot.
One interesting note from the paper was that they estimated the likelihood of a cyclone hitting the Bay of Fundy in any given year was between 10% and 15%, which again seems a little low (I’d say more like once in every 1 to 3 years, these days).
If anyone’s got a plot for a greater portion of the Atlantic, or a more recent plot for NS, I’d like to see it!
