.AVIATION...
Arctic front is surging s-sw and winds have increased earlier
than previously forecast and therefore may decrease some earlier
too. Wintry precip mostly in the form of -SN is expected to
develop INVOF INK/PEQ btwn 08Z-10Z and MAF around 10Z. We expect
-SN BR to prevail for several hrs and MVFR CIGS/VSBY to accompany.
Around an inch of snow is possible. Improving conditions are expected
mostly after 18Z/Thur.
