.SYNOPSIS FOR THE COASTAL WATERS FROM SANDY HOOK NJ TO FENWICK
ISLAND DE AND FOR DELAWARE BAY...

Surface low pressure, well off the Delmarva, will track northeast
into the open Atlantic overnight. High pressure, centered over
the southeastern United States, will nose into the region early on
Saturday. This will be short-lived as a cold front, coming in
from the north, will move into or through the area on Saturday
night and Sunday. This front will then stall before lifting
northward as a warm front Sunday night and Monday. A cold front
will progress through the region around the middle of next week.
Another system may affect the area near the close of next week.
