Tropical Storm Odette Develops Off the East Coast, But Significant Impacts Are Not Likely

The Weather Channel logoThe Weather Channel 9/18/2021 Linda Lam

Tropical Storm Odette is swirling several hundred miles southeast of Boston, but serious impacts are not anticipated in the United States. Strong winds are anticipated in far eastern Canada.

The center of this storm, the 15th of the season, will remain just far enough off the coast to keep impacts in the states to a minimum and Odette is moving away from the United States.

This storm will transition into a potent non-tropical low by Saturday night and is expected to bring heavy rain and strong winds to portions of Newfoundland Sunday. Odette will strengthen some as it loses its tropical characteristics.

This system may brush portions of the Northeast coasts as it tracks offshore, but heavy rain is expected to stay offshore.

Higher surf and rip currents are expected along portions of the East Coast and along coastal Canada into this weekend.

Be sure to heed any warnings if you are heading to the beach late this week or this weekend. Stay out of the water if rip currents are a concern.

There is also an area in the eastern Atlantic that is expected to develop into a tropical depression or storm over the next few days.
