.SYNOPSIS FOR MID ATLC WATERS...Low pressure centered about 40
nm SW of Nags Head will lift slowly N along the Mid-Atlantic
coast tonight. The low will clear well N of the area Tue, with a
stationary front lingering across the waters later Tue into Tue
night. Another low will move to the Mid-Atlantic coast Wed, and
then emerge offshore near the Virginia Capes Wed evening. The low
will track NE while passing across the northern and outer
portions Thu and Thu night, pulling a cold front through the
remainder of the waters, and then will clear well E of the waters
Fri. A high pressure ridge will build to the coast Fri, settle
offshore Fri night, and then shift E of the waters Sat and Sat
night while a cold front approaches the coast.
