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

A weak area of low pressure will move eastward across the Saint
Lawrence Valley Tuesday through Wednesday, bringing a weak cold
front through our region late Tuesday into early Wednesday. High
pressure builds in behind this exiting system through the end of
the week. Uncertainty then becomes rather high for the next
potential system to affect our area by Memorial Day weekend,
however it does appear that another frontal system will impact the
region bringing unsettled weather.
