West central North Atlantic continental shelf and slope waters
beyond 20 nm to 250 nm offshore, including south of Georges Bank
from 1000 fm to 250 nm offshore.

Conditions given represent the highest within that period.

Seas given as significant wave height, which is the average

.SYNOPSIS FOR MID ATLC WATERS...Low pressure over eastern North
Carolina this afternoon will drift NE near the coast and reach
New Jersey this evening, before turning N and accelerating along
the coast of New England later tonight. The low will pull a
series of fronts across the region tonight. The low will lift
well N of the waters by Thu. A low pressure trough will move E
across the region Thu. Another low pressure area will approach
the SE coast Thu night, lift N along the coast Fri into Fri
night, then pass N of the area by Sat. The low will pull a slow-
moving cold front through the region late Fri into Sat. The front
will clear E of the waters by Sat night, followed by another cold
front late Sat night into Sun, and yet a third front later Sun.
High pressure will build over the eastern states in the wake of
these fronts Sun night and persist into Sun night.
