.AVIATION...
/18Z TAFS/ VFR CONDITIONS WILL PERSIST AT THE TERMINALS THROUGH THE
VALID TAF FORECAST PERIOD. ISOLATED STORMS MAY DEVELOP AND IMPACT THE
TERMINALS LATE THIS AFTERNOON/EVENING HOWEVER COVERAGE IS EXPECTED TO
BE MUCH LESS THAN YESTERDAY SO CONFIDENCE IS TOO LOW TO MENTION THUNDER
IN THE TAFS. BUT LIKE YESTERDAY IF STORMS DO MOVE OVER A
TERMINAL...HEAVY RAINFALL CAN CAUSE VISBYS TO LOWER TO MVFR OR EVEN
IFR BRIEFLY. WINDS WILL REMAIN LIGHT /AT OR UNDER 10 KTS/ THROUGH 18Z
MONDAY.
