SYNOPSIS FOR THE SW N ATLC INCLUDING THE BAHAMAS

.SYNOPSIS...A stationary front extends from near 29N65W to
28N70W where it becomes a warm front to just N of the NW Bahamas
and to inland Vero Beach Florida. The warm front will lift
northward through Wednesday. A low pressure system over the
eastern Gulf of Mexico will track east-northeastward towards N
central Florida Wednesday night through Thursday. The low will
lift N of the NW portion on Friday dragging a cold front across
the NW and central waters through Saturday night. Scattered
showers and isolated thunderstorms are expected with both the low
and the cold front. Another low will form near 29N74W by early
on Wednesday, and quickly track northeastward to just NE of the
forecast waters by early on Thursday. This low will push a weak
frontal boundary across the central and eastern waters through
Friday night. A surface trough that extends from just NE of
Hispaniola to near 22N65W will drift NW today and tonight and
merge with the frontal boundary associated with the low that
forms near 29N74W.
