Marine Weather StatementIssued 3:27 PM AST 19 November 2017 A developing low pressure system over Northern Maine will move into
Western Labrador Monday morning. Southerly gales ahead of this system
will shift to generally strong southwesterlies later tonight as the

intensity of a low pressure system forecast to move across the

indications are that this system will track northeastward across
southern waters keeping the strongest winds south of the marine

further northward bringing gale to possible storm force winds to much
