Synopsis for Massachusetts and Rhode Island coastal waters:
 
Low pressure passes south of New England this morning, then moves
off to the east this afternoon. This will bring rain and fog to the
waters for part of today. High pressure then builds in from the
Midwest, drawing much colder air over the waters. This will cause
ocean effect snow showers near Outer Cape Cod as well as light
freezing spray on the waters east of Massachusetts. The high will
move east of the waters over the weekend, bringing milder
temperatures for Sunday and Monday.
