.SYNOPSIS FOR MID ATLC WATERS...Intensifying low pressure will
pass NW and then N of the waters today. The low will pull an
Arctic cold front E and SE over the waters today into tonight. A
series of secondary cold fronts will pass SE across the northern
waters Mon and Mon night as high pressure slowly builds E towards
the area. The high pressure ridge will then move E across the
waters Tue into early Wed. Another low and cold front will slowly
approach the coast late Wed through Thu. The strengthening low
will pass N of the area later Thu into Thu night while pulling a
cold front E over the waters.
