.AVIATION...
Very consistent stratocumulus layer pushing into the area with
bottom of ceiling with respect to MSL is very close to 4500 feet.
With this in mind our TAF sites will have lower AGL CIGS as we
work up the valley to higher and higher ground elevations, so KTRI
will have the lowest ceiling, once it arrives. Also, clouds
expected to hang in all day across most of the area. Best chances
for break in the ceiling later today would be at KCHA as whole
shield lifts north and southeast edge of the shield might erode at
KCHA later today. Have this clearing there by 04z, but could be
earlier.
