areas where gale to storm force northeasterlies are expected. Gale to
storm force southwesterlies will develop south of the low overnight

Thursday morning west of the low.
Marine interests are advised that storm warnings are in effect for
the Strait of Belle Isle, Gulf waters, Southwest Coast - Ramea and

half. Gale warnings are in effect for all remaining areas.
Marine interests are also advised to be on the look out for large
waves and pounding surf along portions of the south and east coasts
during high tide this evening. These waves, combined with high spring
tides, will result in elevated water levels which could cause minor
coastal flooding. As a result, high water level warnings are in
effect for Southwest Coast - Ramea and east and South Coast.
