SYNOPSIS
A cold front over the central waters early today will
slowly dissipate this afternoon as high pressure develops over
the region. The high will move inland tonight as a cold front
approaches from the NW, and low pressure organizes to the SW of
the waters. Intensifying low pressure will pass just NW and then
N of the waters Sat into Sat night as an associated cold front
moves SE over the region. The front will reach the southern
portion Sun as it weakens. Another low pressure area will
approach the N waters by Sun night, and move E and SE over the
northern and central portions Sun night into early Mon. High
pressure will build just W of the waters late Mon and Mon night,
as the next cold front approaches the NW portion. The front will
cross the N waters Tue as high pressure builds to the W of the
area. The high will continue to build just to the W of the waters
Tue night as a low pressure trough strengthens along the coast.
