Marine Weather Statement

Issued 3:52 PM NST 24 January 2017 An intense low pressure system southeast of Greenland will remain
nearly stationary today and tonight, drifting away on Wednesday.
Meanwhile a ridge of high pressure over Western Labrador will begin
to drift slowly eastward. Gale to storm force northwesterlies over
most waters will gradually diminish overnight tonight and Wednesday
as the ridge moves out into the Labrador Sea.

Marine interests are advised that storm warnings are in effect for
the Labrador Sea. Gale warnings are in effect for the South Labrador
Coast, Mid Labrador Coast - Hopedale and south and the North Labrador
Coast - north of Saglek.

Marine interests are also advised that freezing spray warnings are in
effect for the Labrador Sea.

Due to extensive ice coverage, freezing spray warnings will be
suspended for Labrador coastal waters until the ice begins to
retreat. In the meantime, there is still a risk that freezing spray
may be encountered in any leads or small openings.
