.SYNOPSIS FOR NEW ENGLAND WATERS...Behind post-tropical cyclone 
Michael, which will move rapidly northeast and away from the 
waters tonight, winds and seas will diminish. A weak low will 
form near 40N65W early Saturday morning, and that low and a cold 
front will move east Saturday as high pressure builds in from the
west. High pressure then continues from Saturday night through 
Sunday night. On Monday, a warm front will move over the waters 
followed quickly by a cold front late Monday and Monday night, as
low pressure moves through the Canadian Maritimes. The front 
will stall south of the waters Tuesday as high pressure builds in
once again. The high moves east Tuesday night, then a cold front
rapidly approaches from the west Wednesday and moves east of the
waters Wednesday night.
