Synopsis for Massachusetts and Rhode Island coastal waters:
***********************************************************
 
High pres moves east of the waters today allowing gusty SW winds to
develop. A cold front approaches the waters Thu and crosses the
waters Thu night, shifting the winds to the NE. Large high pres then
builds across eastern Canada and northern New England Fri into early
next week. This coupled with the remnants of Sally and eventually
Hurricane Teddy to our south and east will result in persistent
strong NE winds. NE wind gusts will flirt with gale criteria at
times and result in high seas offshore.
