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

High pressure builds to our north today into tonight as a frontal
boundary becomes stationary to our south. The high will build
offshore of New England Friday as an area of low pressure moves
out of the Great Lakes region Friday, and across southeast Canada
Friday night. This will pull a cold front across the area, which
may get hung up across our southern areas Saturday. This front may
begin lifting back northward slightly Saturday night into Sunday
as an area of low pressure lifts through the Great Lakes region
Sunday. This will pull a cold front across the area by late Sunday
into Sunday night. High pressure begins to build into the region
Monday and Tuesday.
