.SYNOPSIS FOR MID ATLC WATERS...A warm front over the southern 
waters will lift N across the area tonight, while a low 
approaches the region from the W. The intensifying low will pass 
N of the waters Sun and Sun night while pulling an Arctic cold 
front E through the region. A series of secondary cold fronts 
will pass SE across the northern waters Mon and Mon night as high
pressure slowly builds E towards the area. The high pressure
ridge will then move E across the waters Tue into early Wed. 
Another low and strong cold front will slowly approach the coast
late Wed through Thu. The strengthening low will pass N of the
area Thu night while pulling a cold front E over the waters.
