.SYNOPSIS FOR NEW ENGLAND WATERS...A stationary front across the
waters will lift N as a warm front tonight, while weak high
pressure S of the front moves E of the area. Intensifying low
pressure will track E and NE from the Great Lakes tonight into
Tue, reach Maine by Tue night, and the Canadian Maritimes Wed. A
strong cold front associated with the low will move E over the
waters late Tue and Tue night, followed by a secondary cold front
moving SE over the area Wed into Wed night. A strong high
pressure ridge will build E toward the coast Thu and Thu night as
low pressure forms E of the waters. The ridge will reach the
coast Fri, move E across the waters Fri night and Sat, then shift
SE of the area Sat night as a cold front moves into the Great
Lakes region.
