Synopsis for the the SW N Atlantic including the Bahamas

.SYNOPSIS...A stationary front extends from near 23N65W to the 
Windward Passage. The front will begin moving slowly eastward by 
tonight and finally push to E of the Leeward Islands near 18N62W 
by Mon morning. Gale conditions are possible near 31N65W Sat 
evening as intense low pressure centered SE of New England pivots
SE to pass just E of Bermuda Sun morning. North swell generated 
by the low will produce very large seas across the waters E and 
NE of the Bahamas through the weekend. Seas will gradually 
subside through early next week as the swell decays.
