Synopsis for Altamaha Sound GA to Flagler Beach FL out to 60 nm-
414 PM EDT Sun Oct 14 2018

.SYNOPSIS...
High pressure along the Mid-Atlantic and New England coasts will
shift southeastward while gradually weakening through Tuesday.
Meanwhile, a frontal boundary will enter the southeastern states 
on Monday night and will stall from the Carolinas through central
Georgia and the Florida panhandle by Tuesday and Wednesday. 
Meanwhile, strong high pressure over the upper Midwest will build
into the Ohio Valley on Thursday. This feature will push the frontal
boundary southward across our waters on Thursday, accompanied by 
a surge of northeasterly winds and building seas. Onshore winds
will then gradually weaken on Friday well in advance of the next
approaching cold front.
