Warnings (In effect)
High water level warning in effect
Chaleur - MiscouIssued 02:49 AM ADT 10 April 2020 The combination of an intensifying low pressure system tracking through the Bay of Fundy and a series of abnormally high tides will give higher than normal water levels again to the Yarmouth area again at high tide near noon.
For the Gulf of St. Lawrence this will occur from Miramichi Bay northward to the Acadian Peninsula and into the Bay of Chaleur early this morning and later this 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 Bay north to the Bay of Chaleur, Gaspesie 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.

Marine Weather StatementIssued 2:48 AM ADT 10 April 2020 An intense low pressure system will track through the Bay of Fundy
this morning then lie over the Gulf of St. Lawrence this evening.
The low will track slowly northeastward on Saturday. Gale to storm
force easterly winds ahead of the disturbance will become strong to
gale force westerlies in its wake.
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 again to the Yarmouth area at high
tide around noon. This will also occur for Miramichi northward to
the Acadian Peninsula and the Bay of Chaleur this morning and near
noon 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. 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, Gaspésie and iles de la Madeleine.
