.SYNOPSIS FOR MID ATLC WATERS...A high pressure ridge will
prevail over the far southern waters today and tonight. A
stationary front across the central waters early day will begin
to drift N as a warm front late today into tonight. Low pressure
will develop along the front off the Mid-Atlantic coast Thu, 
then drift slowly E to SE across the N and central waters Thu 
night into Fri while pulling a weak cold front across the area. 
The weak low will lift N over the area Fri night into early Sat 
as the next cold front approaches from the W. This cold front 
will move E and SE over the waters Sat and Sat night. High
pressure will prevail across the northern waters while another 
low will move off the SE coast and NE into the central and S
