.SYNOPSIS...A warm front will lift NE over the region today into
early tonight as strong high pressure moves off to the E of the
waters. A cold front will approach from the NW later today into
tonight, and then move SE across the waters later tonight into
Mon. Rapidly intensifying low pressure will pass SE of the waters
later Mon, and then pass E of the waters Mon night. All mariners
transiting waters especially SE and E of the waters later Mon and
Mon night should closely monitor the latest forecasts, including
the North Atlantic high seas forecast, and plan to execute
avoidance routing over those areas mainly SE and E of the
offshore waters. Otherwise, high pressure will build SE toward
the area Mon night, cross the area Tue, and then shift E Tue
night ahead of the next cold front. This cold front will move E
and SE across the area later Tue night into Wed, with a high
pressure ridge crossing the area later Wed and Wed night. A warm
front will lift NE over the waters Thu, followed by a cold front
moving offshore Thu night as low pressure passes just N and NE of
the waters.
