Beach Hazard Statement
Issued: 8:21 AM EDT Jun. 25, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Beach hazards statement in effect until 8 PM EDT this
evening...

The National Weather Service in gray has issued a beach hazards
statement... which is in effect until 8 PM EDT this evening.

* Location... midcoast and southwest coast of Maine as well as the
seacoast of New Hampshire.

* Beach hazard... the warm air temperatures in the 70s may cause
people to underestimate the dangers of the cold water
temperatures which are currently only in the mid 50s.

* Timing... through this evening.

* Winds... light, becoming southwest around 10 mph.

* Impacts... the cold water temperatures can quickly cause
hypothermia to anyone immersed in the water. Anyone on boats
or paddlecraft should use extreme caution to avoid this threat.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A beach hazards statement is issued on days when a significant
number of boats and paddlecraft are expected to be out on the
water and when warm air temperatures may cause people to
underestimate the danger of the cold water. Paddle smart from the
start. Always wear your lifejacket. Be aware of wind conditions,
tides and localized currents.
