.SYNOPSIS FOR NEW ENGLAND WATERS...A weak cold front will move to
just S of the area today. A high pressure ridge will build E 
over the waters today and persist through tonight, then slowly 
shift E of the region by Thu. Low pressure will develop off the 
Mid-Atlantic coast Thu, then drift E and SE Thu night into Fri 
while remaining S of the waters. Another high will build S over 
the N waters late Thu, persist over the region Thu night into 
Fri, and then shift E of the waters Fri night. The low will then 
move back to the N and dissipate as a cold front approaches from 
the W Fri night. The cold front will move across the area Sat 
into Sat night. A series of low pressure troughs or secondary 
cold fronts will move SE across the waters Sun and Sun night.
