Georges BankIssued 3:30 PM AST 15 November 2018
'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.
Technical Marine SynopsisIssued 3:30 PM AST 15 November 2018 Tonight and Friday At 3:30 p.m. AST today departing low 944 mb located northeast of
the Grand Banks.
At 3:30 p.m. AST today low 1010 mb located near Cape Hatteras.
By 3:30 p.m. AST Friday low 987 mb located over the Gulf of Maine.
At 3:30 p.m. AST today ridge located on a line northwest-southeast

Marine Weather StatementIssued 3:30 PM AST 15 November 2018 An intense low pressure system east of Newfoundland will continue to
track eastward tonight. Gale force northwesterlies in the wake of the
low will continue to gradually diminish as the low moves further away
over the northern Atlantic and a ridge of high pressure builds in
from the west.
On Friday a second low pressure system will track across the region.
At this time 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.
