Tropical storm Leslie is on the move, but the chance of it hitting the Maritimes is slim, according to Environment Canada.
For past couple of days, it's been stalled southeast of Bermuda, which has caused the storm to weaken and become disorganized.
But Leslie has picked up speed and is tracking northward.
"What we are watching is as it continues to move north, it will eventually reach warmer waters north of Bermuda," said Jean Marc Couturier with Environment Canada's Hurricane Centre, said Saturday.
"There is an opportunity for the system to pick up more energy and intensify and therefore we are expecting it to regain to its hurricane status that it once had."
Couturier says there's only about a 10 percent chance Leslie will make a direct hit on the Maritimes, veering instead into Newfoundland by Thursday morning.
For eastern Nova Scotia, there is still a slight chance there might be some impact, depending on especially if the track ends up being further west," Couturier said.
Leslie's wind speeds are expected to reach up to 150 kilometres an hour at its peak.
By then it will be a post-tropical storm, but it could still pack a wallop with winds up to 100 kilometres an hour.
It appears the other looming hurricane; Michael will track well away from the east coast.
