453 PM EDT Sun May 20 2018

Conditions given represent the highest within that period.

...Please refer to Coastal Waters Forecasts (CWF) available
through NOAA Weather Radio and other means for detailed coastal
waters forecasts...

.SYNOPSIS...A cold front will pass SE across the northern waters
tonight, then stall and weaken over the central waters Mon and
Mon night. A high pressure ridge will build E over the northern
waters Mon and Mon night, then shift E of the area Tue, with the
front returning N as a warm front. The next cold front will
approach the area from the NW Tue night as developing low
pressure passes N of the area and lifts the warm front N of the
waters. The cold front will move SE over the northern and central
waters Wed and Wed night, and then stall and weaken over the
southern waters Thu into Thu night as high pressure crosses the
northern portion. The high will move off to the E of the area Fri
and Fri night as yet another cold front slowly approaches from
the NW. A slowly weakening high pressure ridge extending from the
southern waters E to Bermuda will persist tonight into Wed, and
then dissipate Wed night.
