Marine Weather Statement

Issued 3:53 AM NDT 23 September 2014 A deepening low pressure system over the South Labrador Sea will
track northeastwards to lie over the Southwest Coast of Greenland by
this afternoon. The system will then weaken as it travels northwards
up the coast of Greenland. A trough extending back from this low
currently lies over Southeastern Labrador, and will be east of the
Belle Isle Bank by this evening.

Strong to gale force northeasterlies are north of the low and trough,
while gale force southwesterlies are to their south. Winds will veer
to generally strong to gale force northwesterlies in the system's
wake. Over the northern half of the East Labrador Sea, these
northwesterlies are forecast to reach storm force.

Marine interests are advised that a storm warning is in effect for
East Labrador Sea - northern half. Gale warnings are in effect for
all remaining waters except Lake Melville.
