.AVIATION...Low cigs will continue to plague many terminals
through the day however terminals along the southshore have seen
an improvement with cigs scattering out. All terminals have seen
vsbys improve and will likely remain abv 6sm through the rest of
the afternoon.

Issues come up tonight once again. Low cigs should impact all
terminals this evening and overnight with many of them dropping to
at least IFR status. As for fg/br, think most terminals will see
a drop in vsbys however the best chance for fog looks like coastal
MS terminals.

in addition to fg/br there is a good chance that shra and maybe
even some embedded tsra will move in across western sections
overnight, likely impacting BTR and MCB. /CAB/
