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

* The warm air temperatures this weekend, near 70 today and middle to
  upper 70s on Sunday, may cause people to underestimate the dangers
  of the cold water temperatures which are currently only in the
  lower 50s on the lakes and in the lower 60s 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 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 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 23
  mph from the west. 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.
