.SYNOPSIS...
High pressure over the Ohio Valley will shift eastward off the 
Mid-Atlantic and New England coasts by Sunday evening. A frontal 
boundary will enter the southeastern states on Monday night as 
high pressure sinks southward and weakens off the U.S. eastern 
seaboard. Strong high pressure building over the Ohio Valley will 
then push the frontal boundary southward across the Georgia waters
on Wednesday evening and the northeast Florida waters by early 
Thursday, accompanied by a surge of northeasterly winds and 
building seas.
