.SYNOPSIS FOR MID ATLC WATERS...Low pressure over eastern North
Carolina this afternoon will drift NE near the coast and reach
New Jersey this evening, before turning N and accelerating along
the coast of New England later tonight. The low will pull a
series of fronts across the region tonight. The low will lift
well N of the waters by Thu. A low pressure trough will move E
across the region Thu. Another low pressure area will approach
the SE coast Thu night, lift N along the coast Fri into Fri
night, then pass N of the area by 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, and yet a third front later
Sun. High pressure will build over the eastern states in the wake
of these fronts Sun night and persist into Sun night.
