Marine Weather Statement

forecast to spread over the southernmost waters ahead of Gert, and
then shift to strong to gale force northwesterlies in its wake.
Gert also has the potential to bring high swells to southeastern
coastal Newfoundland.

Marine interests are advised that a storm warning is in effect for
the Southeastern Grand Banks - southern half. A gale warning is in
effect for the Southwestern Grand Banks - southern half.
