Marine Weather Statement

Issued 7:57 PM NDT 16 September 2014 At 8:00 P.M. NDT hurricane Edouard was located near 32.4 north, 57.2
west. Edouard is moving north at 13 knots with a maximum sustained
winds of 90 knots and a central pressure of 958 MB.

Edouard is forecast to turn to the northeast tonight and pass
southeast of the Grand Banks Wednesday night 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 Wednesday
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.
