.SYNOPSIS FOR THE COASTAL WATERS FROM SANDY HOOK NJ TO FENWICK
ISLAND DE AND FOR DELAWARE BAY...

An Unseasonably strong Bermuda High Pressure off the East Coast
will provide one more day of record-breaking warmth over the mid-
Atlantic region. A cold front will push south across the area
tonight and then stall to our south. Several waves of low pressure
will move northeast along this roughly stationary frontal zone,
resulting in periods of rain from Thursday through Sunday. Another
cold front will cross the area late on Sunday followed by high
pressure building in for the first part of next week.
