.AVIATION...
For the 23/12z TAFs, VFR and mostly SKC flight conditions should
continue through the duration of this TAF period at all sites.
Northwesterly surface winds around 10 kts will persist initially,
but speeds will gradually diminish through the daytime hours. The
winds will also back to the southwest and should be southerly
areawide by 24/06z. Despite a dry low-level airmass, the recent
rains and southerly winds could result in very patchy fog
formation near the end of the TAF period. However, overall chances
for fog are too low to mention in the TAFs at this time.
