Forecaster Bob Robichaud said wind gusts could reach up to 49 miles per hour in the Cape Breton area and up to 62 mph over the Avalon Peninsula of Newfoundland.

Weather warnings are in place for Newfoundland, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island.

The storm was located about 366 miles northeast of Bermuda by mid-Monday morning.

Leslie's outer bands buffeted Bermuda on Sunday with gusty winds and rain that caused little damage. The Bermuda Police Service said there were no reports of any major damage or injuries.

Far out in the Atlantic, Hurricane Michael was forecast to weaken to a tropical storm by Tuesday.
