Warnings

Warnings (In effect)

High water level warning in effect

Fundy

Issued 3:25 PM ADT 09 April 2020 The combination of an intensifying low pressure system tracking through the region tonight and a series of abnormally high tides are expected to combine to give higher than normal water levels to many coastal locations along the Bay of Fundy and Shelburne County during high tide this evening.

For the Gulf of St. Lawrence this will occur from Miramichi northward to the Acadian Coast and the Bay of Chaleur early Friday morning and later in the morning along the coast of Iles de la Madeleine. Coastal erosion is possible for some east facing coastlines in the Gulf of St. Lawrence, especially for iIes de la Madeleines, New Brunswick from Miramichi north to the Bay of Chaleur, and parts of the north coast of Prince Edward Island.

Coastal flooding is likely, especially during high tide. Marine interests close to the shoreline should stay alert for worsening conditions, especially during high tide.

High water level warnings are issued when water levels pose a threat to coastal regions.

Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. For more information monitor Canadian Coast Guard radio or Weatheradio stations.

Gale warning in effect

Fundy

Issued 3:30 PM ADT 09 April 2020

'Gale' force winds of 34 to 47 knots are occurring or expected to occur in this marine area. Watch for updated statements. Please refer to the latest marine forecasts for further details and continue to monitor the situation through Canadian Coast Guard radio or Weatheradio stations.

Marine Weather Statement

Issued 3:23 PM ADT 9 April 2020 An intense low pressure system will approach the marine district from
the west today to lie west of the Bay of Fundy this evening. The low
will then track northeastward, reaching Gulf - Magdalen Friday
evening. Gale force southeasterly winds ahead of the disturbance will
begin over western marine areas this evening and will reach remaining
waters by Friday morning. Winds will increase to storm force
easterlies over some regions in the Gulf of St. Lawrence Friday
morning.

In addition, due to a series of abnormally high astronomical tides,
this system will bring higher than normal water levels and a
likelihood of coastal flooding to areas along the Bay of Fundy during
high tide late this evening. This will also occur for Miramichi
northward to the Acadian Coast and the Bay of Chaleur early Friday
morning, and near noon on Friday along the coasts of iles de la
Madeleine. There may also be some minor flooding along parts of the
Northumberland Strait coast of Prince Edward Island near noon on
Friday. Finally, there may be some coastal erosion and damage due to
rough and pounding surf along east facing shorelines in the Gulf of
St. Lawrence, especially for Northern New Brunswick and iles de la
Madeleine.

Marine interest are advised that high water level warnings are in
effect for Fundy, Grand Manan, Lurcher, southwestern shore,
Chaleur-Miscou and Gulf - Magdalen.

Marine interests are also advised that storm warnings are in effect
for Cabot Strait, Gulf-Magdalen, Chaleur-Miscou and Anticosti -
southeastern half. Gale warnings are in effect for all remaining
waters.
