Marine Weather StatementIssued 7:51 PM AST 15 November 2018 A ridge of high pressure will track across the district tonight to
lie over Newfoundland Friday morning. Gale force northwesterlies well
ahead of the ridge will gradually diminish in its vicinity.
On Friday another low pressure system will track across the region.
It is expected that this low pressure system will track across Nova
Scotia, from the southwest to the northeast. There remains
uncertainty in the final track and intensity of this system. Slight
changes in the track of this low could significantly change some of
the marine forecasts, especially for regions that border Nova Scotia
and New Brunswick. There is also a possibility that storm force
southeasterlies ahead of this low may develop over southwestern
waters on Friday.
Marine interests are advised that gale warnings are in effect for all
waters except Chaleur - Miscou and Anticosti.
