Showers across the southeast will gradually diminish this morning
into the afternoon. Widespread IFR CIGS early this morning will

redevelopment of IFR CIGS from about 06-15z Thursday.

weak frontal boundary that moves through Friday or Saturday,

synoptic forcing right now. The closed low will become an open wave
around midweek losing its grip across the region. This will allow
surface high pressure to slide across the region bringing dry
