.SYNOPSIS FOR MID ATLC WATERS...A cold front will pass SE across
the northern and central waters today into tonight. The front
will stall over the central and southern waters later tonight 
through Thu night as low pressure develops along the front and
tracks NE near the outer waters. The stalled front will lift N 
across the area as a warm front Fri through Sat night while 
another low moves N along the coast. The low and warm front will 
then pass N of the area late Sat night into Sun. High pressure 
will build NW of the area Thu, and pass N of the area Thu night 
through Sat. A ridge will build across the region Sun night.
