.SYNOPSIS FOR NEW ENGLAND WATERS...A high pressure ridge will
move E over the southern and central waters tonight as a 
weakening cold front moves S into the Gulf of Maine. The front
will dissipate Tue as the high moves off to the E of the area. A
warm front will lift N into the waters Tue night, as low 
pressure moves E from New England. The low will move E over the 
region Wed with an associated cold front moving SE over the 
waters. High pressure will begin to build E toward the area Wed 
night as a low pressure trough moves SE over the region. High
pressure will cross the waters Thu, then move SE of the area Thu
night as low pressure passes N of the waters. The high will 
persist to the SE of the waters Fri into Sat as a series of low 
pressure areas pass N and then NE of the region. A weak cold 
front will move S over the Gulf of Maine late Sat, then become 
stationary over the central portion Sat night.
