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

* The warm air temperatures this weekend in the mid to upper 60s may
  cause people to underestimate the dangers of the cold water
  temperatures which are currently only in the upper 40s on the lakes
  and in the mid 50s on the rivers.

* The cold water temperatures can quickly cause hypothermia to anyone
  immersed in the water. According to the Maine Warden Service, 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!
