SYNOPSIS FOR CALIFORNIA WATERS
A high pressure center is

central California will persist until being absorbed by an inland
low Fri night. The high will drift SW as a cold front moves N of
the area. A new high will form behind the cold front and the
associated ridge will stretch into the northern waters Wed and
Wed night. The high will weaken as another high forms and fills
in its place NW of the waters Thu. A new low will form to the W
of the northern waters and enter the area Fri. The low will
dissipate Sat as another low passes N of the waters. High
pressure will expand and dominate the waters W of the region Sat
