Marine Weather Statement
Issued: 7:23 AM May. 25, 2024 – National Weather Service
...National Weather Service Cold Water Safety Message...

Daytime air temperatures will rise primarily into the lower 70s
to lower to middle 80s across the Tri-State area this weekend.
However, water temperatures remain in the 50s.

The cold water temperatures can quickly cause hypothermia to anyone
immersed in the water. 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.

Several things to consider...

* Always wear a life jacket.

* Dress for the water temperatures, not air temperatures. Wear cold
water protection, like a wetsuit or drysuit.

* Carry an Emergency Position Indication Radio Device.

* File a float plan with someone you trust.

* Check the latest marine weather forecast, including water
temperatures at www.weather.gov/okx/marine before you go out on
the waters.

Your ability to survive cold water immersion depends on your ability
to stay afloat and stay warm until help arrives.
