Marine Weather Statement

Issued 7:47 PM NDT 17 September 2014 At 8:00 P.M. NDT hurricane Edouard was located near 37.8 north, 51.2
west. Edouard is moving northeastward at 23 knots with maximum
sustained winds of 75 knots and a central pressure of 960 MB.

Edouard is forecast to continue to track northeastward this evening
and pass southeast of the Grand Banks later tonight and into
Thursday. At this time its highest impact from a wind perspective is
expected to be strong northeast to northerly winds over the Southern
Grand Banks.

Long period swells near 2 meters generated by Edouard are expected to
begin arriving along the South Coast of Newfoundland this evening,
which may result in breaking waves and pounding surf along parts of
the coastline. However since the tidal cycle is nearing a low point,
the impacts are not expected to be as significant as they would be at
higher points in the tidal cycle.
