 .SYNOPSIS FOR THE COASTAL WATERS FROM SANDY HOOK NJ TO FENWICK

ISLAND DE AND FOR DELAWARE BAY...

 A weak area of low pressure will move across the Mid-Atlantic along

a stalled front to our south later today and tonight. This will

be followed by a much more substantial low that will track from

the Great Plains toward the Great Lakes region through the day

Friday. A cold front trailing this low will cross our area

Friday, bringing a noticeable drop in temperatures back to more

seasonable values. Zonal flow will lead to a rather quiet and

dry weekend. Another weak area of low pressure looks to move

across the area Monday, followed by a cooler polar high that

builds into the region into the day Tuesday.
