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

* People may underestimate the dangers of the cold water
  temperatures which are currently only in the mid 50s on the lakes
  and in the 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!

* Strong winds are also expected Memorial Day with gusts up to 25
  mph from the southeast. 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.
