Synopsis for the SW N Atlantic including the Bahamas
239 PM EST Tue Jan 16 2018

.SYNOPSIS...A stationary front extends from 31N67W to 26N72W to 
eastern Cuba near 21N77W. Strong N to NE winds W of the front and
S of 25N will diminish through Wed as the front weakens. A strong
cold front will move off the SE United States coast on Wed, then 
weaken as it reaches from near 24N65W to the Windward Passage by 
Fri morning. Strong high pres in the wake of the front will bring 
strong N to NE winds and building seas NE of the Bahamas. These 
conditions will diminish Thu night through Fri night. The frontal 
remnants will move back to the W as a trough beginning on Fri,
reaching the central Bahamas late Fri night and the central 
Bahamas Sat night into Sun night. Scattered showers may be 
possible with this trough.
