321 AM EST Fri Dec 14 2018

.Synopsis for Stonington ME to Merrimack River MA out to 25 NM...
As high pressure moves east into the Atlantic today, a cold front
will move in from the northwest and cross the Gulf of Maine early
Saturday. Winds will increase out of the southwest ahead of the
front, then shift to the west and north behind it as high pressure
builds into northern Maine and the Canadian Maritimes on Sunday.
Meanwhile, low pressure tracking out of the Southeast US will arrive
at the Mid Atlantic coast on Sunday and push eastward out to sea
south of Cape Cod Sunday night. The next cold front arrives from the
northwest on Monday with a strong, cold northwest flow behind it.
