move southeast across the waters through tonight. Another low
moves off of the Carolina coast Friday, and then will move
northeast toward Newfoundland Friday night and Saturday while

far southern waters Monday and Monday night, while weak low
pressure moves east across the mid-Atlantic waters during that
time.
