SYNOPSIS for the SW N Atlantic including the Bahamas  1127 AM EDT Sat Aug 13 2022  

 A narrow ridge extends from the central Atlantic  W-SW to northern Florida along 29N, and will weaken and sink  southward through early next week as a frontal boundary moving  off the SE U.S coast stalls just N of the area. Moderate to  fresh E winds S of 25N will veer to the SE and weaken to gentle  to moderate later this afternoon and change little through Wed.  A broad tropical wave will approach the Lesser Antilles through  this evening, bringing a slight increase in winds and seas east  these islands tonight through early Mon. A cold front will move  over the waters northeast of NE Florida late Tue, then stall and  weaken through Wed night.
