.SYNOPSIS FOR MID ATLC WATERS...Mariners should monitor later
forecasts for the potential of a powerful low pressure system
impacting the waters by Fri night and lasting into the weekend,
and strongly consider avoidance planning. Otherwise, high
pressure will prevail over the waters tonight while weakening, as
another cold front approaches the northern waters from the NW.
The front will move SE into the northern waters Fri and stall by
Fri night, as low pressure gradually broadens and strengthens
over the southern waters. The low will then rapidly intensify Fri
night and Sat as it moves north-northeast over the waters, 
reaching a position off the New England coast as a powerful low 
by Sat night. The low will move into the Canadian Maritimes Sun, 
with high pressure slowly building E behind the low. High 
pressure will cover most of the area Sun night into Mon. The high
will weaken Mon night into Tue night as a weak low or low 
pressure trough develops just off the SE U.S. coast and continues
through Tue night.
