Special Weather Statement
Issued: 8:32 AM May. 26, 2019 – National Weather Service
...National Weather Service Cold Water Safety Message...

* Warm air temperatures ranging from the upper 60s in the
mountains to the lower to mid 80s in southern New Hampshire may
cause people to underestimate the dangers of the cold water
today. Water temperatures on lakes and rivers are only in the
50s.

* 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 this weekend and use
extreme caution to avoid this threat. Paddle smart from the
start and always wear your life jacket!

* Gusty winds are also expected this afternoon with gusts up to 25
mph from the west. Gusty winds can increase the likelihood of
overturning your boat, canoe or kayak due to increased wave
heights.
