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

Low pressure will continue to track up the Ohio Valley toward the
eastern Great Lakes this morning. A warm front will gradually lift
northward and across our area through this morning. A strong cold
front will then cross our region late this afternoon through this
evening. Weak high pressure briefly moves in by late Saturday before
the next low pressure system crosses the area west to east on
Sunday. High pressure moves back in to start next week before the
next system moves in next Tuesday. A frontal boundary looks to then
stall in the general vicinity of the region through the remainder of
next week as additional waves move through along it.
