But Nova Scotia will take it in the neck, so to speak. Kyle has made a pretty hard right turn and is going to make landfall in Nova Scotia. This changes the landfall estimate by many hours, because of the complex shape of the New England/Maritime coast. Indeed, Kyle is essentially already there, with the windiest conditions expected to occur over the next several hours in SW Nova Scotia.
Here’s the relevant part of the official forecast:
