Sailing Climate along the Nova Scotia Coast In August - September

Nova Scotia is located on the East Coast of North America. The province is virtually surrounded by water bodies; the Bay of Fundy, the Northumberland and Cabot Straits and the Atlantic Ocean.

Ocean Currents
Weather along the Atlantic coast is significantly affected by the ocean currents and resulting water masses. The southward flowing Labrador Current hugs the coastline and keeps relatively cool water along the coast. The Gulf Stream flows in the opposite direction but lies further offshore. The interaction between the weather and these two currents makes the Atlantic coast a favored area for fog. Fog is densest and most persistent in spring. The frequency declines into late summer and fall as coastal waters warm.
