Marine Weather Statement

Issued 8:00 PM AST 22 November 2017 A low pressure system southwest of Georges Bank will track rapidly
northeastward tonight. The low will intensify as it tracks south of
Halifax overnight and across Cape Breton into Cabot Strait Thursday
morning. Gale to storm force south to southeasterlies will develop
ahead of this low then quickly shift to gale to storm gale force
northwesterlies behind it. These northwesterlies will diminish over
all but northeasternmost waters by late in the day Thursday.

Georges Bank, West Scotian Slope, eastern shore, Sable, East Scotian

Marine interests in the northern part of Cabot Strait are also
advised to prepare for higher than normal water levels on Thursday
during high tide along the Southwest Coast of Newfoundland from a
combination of storm surge and high waves and pounding surf.These
conditions have the potential to cause minor coastal flooding or
infrastructure damage. Please monitor future forecasts for updated
information.
