.Synopsis for Massachusetts and Rhode Island coastal waters...
High pressure over Maine shifts east into Nova Scotia today. This
allows low pressure to develop over the Mid Atlantic states and move
east tonight. The low passes Southern New England late tonight and
moves off to the east Saturday. Weak high pressure  will then build
across the waters for the remainder of the weekend, and may linger
into Monday and Tuesday.

hour forecast period, please visit www.weather.gov/boston and
