VFR conditions and southeast winds are expected for the next 24
hours and beyond. Batches of cirrus clouds and the occasional
mid level accas deck will continue to stream into the area from
low pressure centered over the central Plains states. A
substantial dry layer remains in place over our area, as a result
cloud cover will tend to dissipate as it moves into the area with
a few instances of virga here and there.
