.SYNOPSIS FOR CALIFORNIA WATERS...A high pressure ridge will

moves into the N waters Tue, and dissipate as it moves into the
central waters Tue night. A high pressure ridge will build over
the NW waters Wed, and begin to weaken and move to the SE Wed
night into Thu as a cold front approaches the area. The front
will move across the waters late Thu into Fri, with high pressure
building in behind the front Fri and Fri night, as a low pressure
trough redevelops along the coast and continues into Sat night.
The high pressure ridge will persist into Sat night.
