NOAA terminology

Quote:
.SYNOPSIS FOR MID ATLC WATERS...A WARM FRONT WILL LIFT NE ACROSS
THE CENTRAL AND NRN WATERS THIS AFTERNOON INTO TONIGHT. WEAK LOW
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
CENTRAL WATERS TONIGHT AND SAT...INTO THE SRN WATERS SAT
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
AREA TUE WHILE A COLD FRONT APPROACHES FROM THE W.
$$
What does this mean?
1. NRN
2. SRN

Anyone know where NOAA keeps it cheat sheet for the layman ?

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.
