As the cold front moves quickly offshore, high pressure
and rising heights should bring fair/dry weather through
06Z Sunday.  A cold front arriving from West to East early
Sunday will bring a chance of rain showers with fropa.

MARFC hydrologists are running the hydro model at this
time and all river and stream forecasts will be issued
before 11am.
