The National Weather Service in Caribou has issued a beach

through this evening.

* Location... Acadia National Park... Schoodic Point peninsula...
Lamoine Beach... Castine... Roque Bluffs State Park... Quoddy Head
State Park.

* Beach hazard... the warm air temperatures in the low to mid 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.

* Impacts... anyone on boats or paddlecraft should use caution
and be prepared for immersion. Dress for water temperatures
and know how to perform rescues.

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.
