.SYNOPSIS FOR MID ATLC WATERS...Weak low pressure remains over 
the N waters and will move E along a nearly stationary front 
that extends E from the low and also the front extends SW to 
near Cape Hatteras this evening. The stationary front will 
persist over the N waters and extend from the N mid Atlantic 
coast through about late Mon. The stalled front will lift N as a
warm front Mon night, and N of the area Tue. High pressure 
will remain centered to the E of the southern areas and will 
maintain a ridge W over this region through Fri night. A cold 
front will gradually move SE into the N waters Fri and Fri night.
