SYNOPSIS FOR MID ATLC WATERS
A stalling front approaching the
far northern waters will dissipate early tonight. To the south,
a broad high pressure ridge will persist today as weak low
pressure remains near the Georgia coast. The ridge will slowly
shift south of the waters tonight and Wed. Another cold front
will move into the northern waters overnight into Wednesday, with
weak low pressure developing along the front Wednesday. The low
will move off to the northeast of the waters, passing south of
Nova Scotia Wednesday night, with the front becoming nearly
stationary over the northern waters by Thursday, and then
dissipating Thursday night. A third cold front will approach from
the northwest by Thursday night. The front will move southeast
into the northern waters by Friday. The front will gradually push
south across the central waters Friday through Saturday, with
weak lows occurring along the front. The front will stall from
the South Carolina coast east and northeastward Saturday night as
high pressure builds east over the waters north of the front.
