.SYNOPSIS...A high pres ridge will build E into the S waters
today as strong low pressure moves NE from Nova Scotia. The high
will cross the southern waters tonight into Fri as a weak cold
front dissipates just N of the area. The high will shift E of the
waters Fri night as low pressure organizes to the S of the
waters. The low will pass SE and E of the waters Sat into Sat
night. A moderate to strong cold front will approach the coast
Sat, then cross the area Sat night. The intensifying low will
move E and NE away from the region Sun into Sun night as high
pressure builds slowly E toward the area. The high will then
drift E over the waters Mon and Mon night.
