.SYNOPSIS FOR CALIFORNIA WATERS...High pressure will persist to
the W and NW of the waters through Thu night. A coastal trough
will expand northward into the central and N portions today
through Thu night. The coastal trough will strengthen over the N
and central areas Wed and Wed night, then become weaker Thu and
Thu night as high pressure weakens W and NW of the area. A cold
front will approach the N waters late Fri, then move into the
area and dissipate Fri night. A strong area of high pressure will
build in from the W and NW late Fri through Sat night as the
coastal trough amplifies.
