.SYNOPSIS FOR MID ATLC WATERS...Thunderstorms developing off the
Mid-Atlc coast this morning have the potential to produce gusty
winds and rough seas in their vicinity. Mariners in the area
should use caution. A high pressure ridge over the northern
waters this morning will pass E of the region later today into
tonight. A stationary front over the central waters this morning
will lift N as a warm front later today into tonight, and pass N
of the area Sat. High pressure will build W towards the area
tonight into Sat night, and then persist while slowly weakening
just to the E of the region Sun through Tue night. A cold front
will approach the coast Sun into Sun night from the W and NW, and
move slowly offshore later Sun night into Mon. The front will
stall and slowly weaken across the northern and central waters
later Mon through Tue night as weak low pressure forms along the
boundary.
