.AVIATION...A weak upper level impulse is riding east across the
Southeast states this morning generating a relatively broad area of
alto cu ceilings impacting the terminals; and a broken lower vfr
deck at tri. Drier air builds into the Southern Appalachians around
mid day into the early afternoon helping to erode the mid deck. A
cold dry northwest flow continues into the evening allowing for a
long period of vfr conditions. There is a possibility that enough
low level moisture builds back into the valleys of the Central
Appalachians later tonight and trends southwest into the northern
reaches of the Great Valley to impact tri with an mvfr ceiling.
Otherwise, the terminals should remain vfr until the end of the
forecast.
