.SYNOPSIS FOR MID ATLC WATERS...Low pressure over New Jersey
early tonight, will move NE along the New England coast later
tonight into Thu. The low will pull a series of fronts across the
region tonight. The low will lift well N of the waters during the
day Thu as a low pressure trough passes E over the region.
Another low pressure area will organize near the S. Carolina
coast Thu night, lift N along the mid-Atlantic coast Fri, and
pass N of the waters Fri night into 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. A third front will
pass SE over the area later Sun. High pressure will build over
the eastern states in the wake of these fronts Sun night, and
then build SE into the southern and central waters Mon and Mon
night.
