Although Hurricane Gert is well east of the Maritimes, long period swell along the Atlantic Coast of Nova Scotia may persist for a few more hours.

The swell will continue to produce waves breaking to 2 to 3 metres along parts of the coast and up to 4 metres along the Guysborough county and Cape Breton coasts late this evening. Rip currents are likely for Atlantic facing coastlines.

Waves will gradually diminish overnight tonight and into Friday morning from west to east.

The public should exercise caution, especially while swimming.
