.AVIATION...

Ongoing convection will continue to bring a risk of brief periods
of gusty winds, hail, and reduced visibilities due to heavy
rainfall to the terminals this afternoon. KMCB and KBTR are
beginning to improve as the convection has pushed east of these
areas, but the remaining terminals will continue to see the threat
of convection through around 00z. Conditions will briefly improve
into VFR range at all of the terminals from around 00z through
08z, but a period of low ceilings and fog should begin to impact
the terminals after 08z. Ceilings could fall to as low as 300
feet at most terminals, and visibilities may drop to 1/2 mile at
KHDC, KMCB, and KHDC tonight. As a result, a period of IFR and
LIFR restrictions can be expected from around 08z through 14z.
After 14z, drier air will mix down to the surface allowing a quick
return to VFR conditions. 32
