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

* Water temperatures are only in the upper 40s 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. According to the US Coast Guard,
  when the water temperatures are below 50 degrees, the chance of
  immediate incapacitation due to cold shock is extremely high.
  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!

* South winds will shift to northwest later this morning with gusts
  up to 20 mph. If boating on large bodies of water, these winds can
  increase the likelihood of overturning your boat,canoe or kayak
  due to increased wave heights.
