    Synopsis for the SW N Atlantic including the Bahamas
    415 PM EST Fri Dec 6 2019
    .SYNOPSIS...A stationary front extending from near 31N53W to
    25N65W to the northwest coast of Haiti will gradually weaken 
    through Sat night. A cold front extending from near 31N57W to
    28N65W to 26N72W to 29N80W will quickly move southeast and merge 
    with the northern part of the stationary front east of the area by
    early Sat evening. The western part of the cold front will be 
    left behind as a trough over the northwest waters Sat night into 
    early Sun. The trough will move back to the west-northwest from 
    Sun afternoon through Mon as strong high pressure builds southward
    across the waters north and northeast of the Bahamas. The 
    resultant tight gradient will bring increasing winds along with 
    building seas over these same waters from about Sun afternoon 
    through at least Mon evening. These conditions are expected to 
    begin to diminish thereafter into Wed as the next cold front is 
    expected to move into the far northwest waters late Tue night, and
    reach from near 31N72W to near west-central Cuba by late on Wed. 
    Strong north to northeast winds will follow behind this front.
