.DISCUSSION...Update for 06z Aviation.

&&

.AVIATION...Flight rules are xpctd to continue to deteriorate
thru the night. IFR/LIFR CIGs/VSBYs have overspread much of the
region and CIGs/VSBYs should continue to gradually lower thru the
night...with LIFR/VLIFR VSBYs xpctd at KCRP/KVCT/KALI for a good
part of the night. KLRD TAF fcst is tougher. Thinking attm is that
KLRD will remain VFR much of the night...but there is a window
from roughly 08-10z /give or take an hr/ where IFR CIGs and lower
VSBYs may dvlp across the aerodrome before drier spreads Ewrd
late in the night. Poor flight rules should rapidly improve late
in the night/first hr or two after sunrise across KCRP/KALI and
eventually KVCT as said drier air spreads Ewrd...with VFR
prevailing drng the day. Weak/vrb sfc winds overnight becmg WNWrly
drng the day Sat and a little gusty.
