By 3:00 a.m. NST Sunday ridge located northeast of the Marine

At 8:00 p.m. NST tonight deepening low 974 mb located southwest

By 3:30 p.m. NST Sunday low 945 mb located over southeastern

Marine Weather Statement

Issued 7:58 PM NST 24 January 2015 A developing low pressure system southwest of Nova Scotia is forecast
to rapidly deepen into a major storm as it tracks northeastwards over
the Gulf of St. Lawrence on Sunday morning. It is then forecast to
cross Southeastern Labrador on Sunday afternoon. Storm force
southerly winds will develop ahead of this low overnight tonight over
southwestern waters and then spread northeastwards across the marine
district. Gale to storm force southwesterlies will follow in its
wake.

Marine interests are advised that storm warnings are in effect for
all waters, and a high water level warning is in effect for the
Strait of Belle Isle.

Marine interests are also advised that freezing spray warnings are in
effect for the Strait of Belle Isle, Northeast Gulf, Gulf - Port au
Port, Northeast Coast, Belle Isle Bank and Funk Island Bank.

Higher than normal water levels and rough pounding surf are expected
to develop along the western and southern coasts of Newfoundland,
from early Sunday morning until Sunday night. While current guidance
indicates that the highest water levels will not likely coincide with
the astronomical high tide, there is potential for water levels to
increase further if the storm track changes. The public is advised
to monitor future forecasts and warnings, as warnings may be issued
as further information becomes available.
