.SYNOPSIS FOR CALIFORNIA WATERS...High pressure will persist
across the waters today, then move NE and inland tonight. Low
pressure will form W of the waters tonight, then lift quickly N
while passing just W and NW of the area Sat and Sat night. The
low will pull a strong cold front into the N portions late Sat,
then into the central region Sat night. The cold front will reach
the S portions Sun and dissipate Sun night. Another low pressure
will approach the N waters by Sun night, then move E and SE over
the northern and central portions Sun night into early Mon. High
pressure will build just W of the waters late Mon and Mon night,
as the next cold front approaches the NW portion. The front will
cross the N waters Tue as high pressure builds to the W of the
area. The high will continue to build just to the W of the waters
Tue night as a low pressure trough strengthens along the coast.
