New England continental shelf and slope waters from 25 nm
offshore to the Hague Line, except to 1000 fm south of New
England.

Conditions given represent the highest within that period.

Seas given as significant wave height, which is the average
height of the highest 1/3 of the waves. Individual waves may be
more than twice the significant wave height.

.SYNOPSIS FOR NEW ENGLAND WATERS...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.
