...National Weather Service Cold Water Safety Message...

* The warm air temperature in the 70s on Saturday may cause people
  to underestimate the dangers of the cold water. Water
  temperatures on lakes and rivers are in the low 50s.

* The cold water temperatures can quickly cause hypothermia to
  anyone immersed in the water. According to the Maine Warden
  Service, when the water temperature is below 60 degrees, the
  average submerged person could lose dexterity within minutes and
  be unable to accomplish simple tasks. Anyone on small boats,
  canoes or kayaks should plan accordingly this weekend and use
  extreme caution to avoid this threat. Paddle smart from the
  start and always wear your life jacket!
