The weather's warm. However, Ian Gilson of the safe boating council reminds us to wear a lifejacket, because the water's still pretty cold.

"Just sure you have it on you, because we get tossed overboard, the waves take your boat away -- you don't have your lifejacket on -- you're in trouble. Especially at this time of year, when hypothermia's a real issue," he said.

Today's humidex is expected to reach 26.

Gilson noted the impending legalization of marijuana and the opioid crisis presents another challenge for enforcement, as well as search and rescue technicians.

"Boat sober," he emphasized.
