Good day all!

The tropics are pretty quiet once again.  INVEST 95L is noted north of the Greater Antilles, however upper level winds are forecast to remain non conducive for development, and development is not expected.

This appears to be a Miller B type of setup.  Doesn’t appear as if much snow will be involved, at least for the U.S., however a good portion of the eastern half of the country can expect a significant drop in minimum night time temperatures associated with this trof as colder air is brought down from Canada.

Over the coastal areas of the Mid Atlantic coastal region, sustained winds to 25 kts can be expected over the open waters, with once again, the biggest impact being over the New England coastal areas from Cape Cod to the Gulf of Maine, with winds along the range of 35 kts., and to 40 kts well offshore of the Carolinas area.

Of course this will bring sea heights up well above normal.  It is recommended boaters and residents along these areas follow their local NWS information closely.
