pass E across the central waters on Wed as its associated cold
front moves SE over the southern waters. Another strong cold
front will push SE over the region Wed night into Thu. Strong
high pressure will build E into the area Thu night and Fri, then
move well E of the area Fri night ahead of another approaching
cold front. This front will cross the region Sat and Sat night.
