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

* The warm air temperatures through Monday in the upper 70s to near
  80F 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 20
  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.
