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

* The warm air temperatures today may cause people to underestimate
  the dangers of the cold water temperatures which are currently only
  around 50 on the lakes and in the lower to mid 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!

* Gusty winds are expected today with gusts up to 25 mph from the
  southwest. 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.
