.SYNOPSIS FOR MID ATLC WATERS...Low pressure over the outer
waters will continue lifting quickly northeast this evening, 
clearing well northeast of the waters tonight. Behind the low, a
cold front will slowly move southeast across the waters through 
tonight. Another low moves off of the Carolina coast Friday, and 
then will move northeast toward Newfoundland Friday night and 
Saturday while strengthening. As the low moves well to the
northeast of the waters, high pressure builds in from the west 
from Saturday afternoon through Sunday night. High pressure 
remains over the far southern waters Monday and Monday night, 
while a weak low pressure and frontal boundary moves east across
the central and northern zones. A cold front approaches from the
northwest Tuesday, then moves across the waters Tuesday night.
