 .SYNOPSIS...An upper-level trough will be positioned along and
 just off the Eastern Seaboard through the weekend. This will
 weaken the surface ridge and force it eastward, resulting in
 slackening breezes. An extended period of light to gentle breezes
 are expected through at least the early part of next week.
