.DISCUSSION...

Updated the suite of forecast products to illustrate the fact that
moclr skies are expected thru the remainder of the morning hrs,
with diurnal influences kicking in by the afternoon hrs, supporting
ptcldy skies. Looks like best chance of showers/thunderstorms will
also be during the afternoon hrs. Tweaked hrly temp, dewpoint, and
wind speed/direction grids also. Remainder of forecast continues
to be on track.

.AVIATION...
18Z TAF DISCUSSION.

VFR conditions expected thru 28/18Z. Several amendments possible
at terminals thru period if convection develops at terminals.
With a summertime wx pattern will be in place per ridging
influences sfc/aloft, enough low level moisture will be around
to support development of mainly diurnal based convection. As
with a summertime convective pattern also, can not guarantee
convection will happen at terminals, but certainly can not rule
out in vicinity thru at least 28/02Z. If convection develops
at/near terminals, MVFR fog could develop CKV/BNA, with MVFR/IFR
fog developing CSV 28/08Z-28/14Z. From 28/14Z-28/18Z..there could
be some diurnal initialized few/sct cu/ac approaching 28/18Z...but
enough uncertainty at this time/minimal impact to aviation
interest, to mention at terminals at this time. Light SE to SW winds
expected thru 28/18Z.
