.SYNOPSIS FOR THE COASTAL WATERS FROM SANDY HOOK NJ TO FENWICK
ISLAND DE AND FOR DELAWARE BAY...
A front in our vicinity this morning will dissipate as high pressure
offshore becomes more dominant. A strong cold front will arrive in
our area later Thursday, which will likely interact with the
remnants of Hurricane Michael as it accelerates northeastward and
off the Mid-Atlantic coast later Thursday night into Friday morning.
High pressure then builds in for Saturday before shifting offshore
Sunday. The next cold front should arrive on Monday.
