Cold front extends from Bermuda SW to near Turks/Caicos will continue to weaken as it drifts E-SE. By morning of 10th, will extend frm 29N/60W S-SW to Mona Pass.
Low pressure is expected to develop along a front to N of Bermuda tonight. Will push the front S slightly. By tomorrow evening will stall just N of Bermuda W to N Carolina. Will move little thru the 10th. Another low will develop along the front just N of Bermuda late on 10th.
Conclusion: A front currently bisects Zone C with enhanced S-SW winds on E side of it and more modest NW winds on W side. This front will drift E-SE across the remainder of Zone C thru midday tomorrow. It will begin to cross Zone B tonight before stalling across the center of zone by morning of 10th. Only the far NW corner of zone A will see the frontal passage early on 10th.
Winds will be highly dependent upon the vessels position with respect to the front itself, with generally enhanced Southerlys for vessels on E side which will tend to become W-NW and lighter on W side of front.
Zone A: Moderate SE winds will tend to ease with the weakening of front thru tomorrow. The threat of squalls will increase as the front nears later today and this threat will continue thru tomorrow.
Zone B: the greatest changes will be taking place across this zone as the front moves across it. Numerous squalls will be likely thru tonight with a chance for strong to locally severe squalls. Widespread enhanced S-SE winds will ease on the east side of front with W'rn and N'rn parts of zone seeing winds veer to the NW and even more Northerly by am/10th.
Zone C: Enhanced S-SW winds now are confined more to the SE quadrant of zone and these will tend to shift e out of zone thru tomorrow morning as the front advances. These will be replaced by more moderate NW winds which will become more W'ly as another front nears from the north by am/10th.
