Marine Weather Statement

Issued 4:08 PM NST 20 January 2019 An intense low pressure system south of Greenland will continue to
push east to lie southeast of Greenland by this evening. Strong to

as the low moves away and a ridge of high pressure approaches.

A second low will approach the Maritimes from the southwest this
evening then move to lie over the Gulf of St. Lawrence on Monday.
Strong to gale force east to southeasterlies will develop over
western waters this evening then spread elsewhere overnight and
Monday as the low approaches. Over Gulf - Port au Port gale to storm
force southeasterlies are expected overnight tonight.

Marine interests are advised that a storm warning is in effect for
Gulf - Port au Port - southeastern half. Gale warnings are in effect
for all remaining waters.

Marine interests are also advised that freezing spray warnings are in
effect for all waters except Southwest Coast, South Coast, East Coast
and the Grand Banks.

Marine interests are further advised that very strong southerly winds
will generate large waves, pounding surf, and higher than normal
waters levels along parts of Southwestern Newfoundland Monday morning
during high tide. Storm surge and risk of coastal flooding is
expected to be highest along south facing shorelines between cape ray
and Burgeo.
