associated warm front will lift N and NE from the southern 
waters early tonight to the northern waters later tonight and 
early Sun as high pressure over the northern portion moves off 
to the E of the area. A strong cold front will move E across the
waters Sun afternoon into Sun night as intensifying low pressure
passes N and then NE of the region. High pressure will slowly 
build SE into the S waters later Mon through Tue night, and 
shift SE of the area by Wed. Another cold front will move SE 
across the area late Tue through Wed, then stall over the S 
waters Wed night into Thu low pressure slowly develops along the
