Offshore Waters Forecast
NWS Ocean Prediction Center Washington DC
1000 AM EST Wed Jan 19 2022

West central North Atlantic continental shelf and slope waters
beyond 20 nm to 250 nm offshore, including south of Georges Bank
from 1000 fm to 250 nm offshore.

Seas given as significant wave height, which is the average
height of the highest 1/3 of the waves. Individual waves may be
more than twice the significant wave height.

ANZ899-200300-
1000 AM EST Wed Jan 19 2022

.SYNOPSIS FOR MID ATLC WATERS...High pressure over the waters
will shift E of the area this afternoon. A cold front will
approach the waters from the W and NW early tonight, move into
the far northwestern portion of waters later tonight, and move
rather slowly E and SE over the remainder of the northern and
into the central waters Thu into Thu night. The front will stall
over the southern waters by Fri as low pressure develops along
the front just off the Carolina coast by Fri afternoon. The low
will strengthen while moving NE over the central and NE portions
of the waters Fri night into Sat, and clear E and NE of the
waters Sat night while intensifying further. Mariners should
closely monitor the latest forecast over the next few days, and
begin to examine possible avoidance routes at this time. High
pressure will build E over the region Sat night, and then weaken
near the coast early Sun. The next cold front will develop and
move E over the waters later Sun and Sun night. The Navtex
station at Chesapeake Virginia which transmits the Navtex Marine
Forecast for Mid-Atlantic states waters is currently out of
service. Technicians are aware of the issue, and working to
restore service.
