...SMALL CRAFT ADVISORY IN EFFECT UNTIL 5 PM EDT THIS AFTERNOON...

Synopsis: As low pressure continues to depart offshore, weak high pressure will build into the region today. That high pressure will shift offshore overnight. A slow moving storm system will then affect our region from Wednesday through Friday as low pressure coming from the west moves overhead and intensifies just off the coast. Eventually, high pressure is expected to build in for most of the weekend. Another area of low pressure may affect the region early next week.
