Issued: 5:32 AM EDT May. 27, 2018 – National Weather Service

... National Weather Service cold water safety message...

* the warm air temperatures today around 70 may cause people to
underestimate the dangers of the cold water temperatures which are
currently only in the upper 40s across Lake Champlain, and in the
lower 50s in the regions smaller lakes and rivers.

* The cold water temperatures can quickly cause hypothermia to
anyone immersed in the water. According to the US Coast Guard,
when the water temperatures are below 50 degrees, the chance of
immediate incapacitation due to cold shock is extremely high.
Anyone on small boats, canoes or kayaks should plan accordingly
if recreating this weekend and use extreme caution to avoid this
threat. Paddle smart from the start and always wear your life
jacket!

* Strong winds are also expected this weekend with gusts up to 26
mph from the southeast. If boating on large bodies of water,
these strong winds can increase the likelihood of overturning
your boat,canoe or kayak due to increased wave heights.
