central waters Sat, and pass E and NE of the area Sat night as a
ridge of high pressure builds E toward the coast, and an
associated trailing cold front stalls off the Carolina coast. The
front will return N across the waters as a warm front Sun as the

waters Sun night as developing low pressure approaches the
northern Mid-Atlantic or southern New England coast. The low will
