.SYNOPSIS...Arctic high pressure will move E away from the 
waters today. A stationary front developing near the coast from 
Cape Lookout southward will persist today, and then weaken and 
dissipate tonight. Rapidly intensifying low pressure will track 
NE from the northern Bahamas later today, move just E of the 
waters tonight, and then continue NE passing NW and N of Bermuda 
Mon into Mon night. Mariners transiting waters especially E and 
NE of the waters tonight into Mon night should closely monitor 
the latest forecasts, including the Atlantic High Seas forecast
and plan to execute avoidance routing over those areas mainly E
and NE of the waters. Otherwise, a cold front will move E across
the area tonight into Mon. A high pressure ridge will build SE 
toward the coast Mon night, settle over the waters Tue into Wed 
night, and then slowly drift E of the area Thu and Thu night 
while maintaining a weakening ridge across the region. Another 
cold front will approach the SE United States coast from the W 
and NW later Thu night.
