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

* The warm air temperatures this weekend in the mid 70s may cause
  people to underestimate the dangers of the cold water
  temperatures which are currently only in the lower 50s across
  Lake Champlain, and in the lower 50s in the regions smaller lakes
  and rivers.

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

* Strong winds are also expected this weekend with gusts up to 24
  mph from the south. If boating on large bodies of water, these
  strong winds can increase the likelihood of overturning your boat,
  canoe or kayak due to increased wave heights.
