PRES WILL PASS SE ACROSS THE NRN WATERS TONIGHT INTO EARLY SAT.
THE LOW WILL PULL A TRAILING COLD FRONT S ACROSS THE NRN AND

NIGHT...THEN S OF THE AREA LATE SUN. A HIGH PRES RIDGE WILL
BUILD S INTO THE WATERS LATE SUN AND MON...THEN PASS E OF THE

2. SRN

They abbreviate a lot. Typically, if you've accessed the text product from a NOAA or NWS site, the abbreviations and technical terms are hyperlinks that open the glossary.
