-- Changed Discussion --
CURRENT SURFACE ANALYSIS SHOWS A COLD FRONT ALONG THE EASTERN FOOTHILLS OF THE SOUTHERN APPALACHIANS...WITH SATELLITE IMAGERY REVEALING SOME LINGERING POST-FRONTAL CLOUDS OVER THE TAF SITES. THESE CLOUDS SHOULD GRADUALLY SCATTER OVER THE TAF SITES BY MID AFTERNOON...AS COOLER AND DRIER AIR SLOWLY MOVES INTO THE AREA BEHIND THE COLD FRONT. THE MAIN FORECAST ISSUE THIS TAF ISSUANCE IS THE POSSIBILITY OF FOG FORMATION LATE TONIGHT AS SKIES CLEAR. A PERSISTENT WIND FLOW IS EXPECTED AT KCHA AND KTYS OVERNIGHT...WHICH MIGHT COMBINE WITH THE DRY AIR TO LIMIT MUCH FOG FORMATION. THUS... WILL JUST MENTION TEMPORARY MVFR VISIBILITIES FOR NOW AT KTYS. AT KTRI...WINDS SHOULD BECOME CALM OVERNIGHT WITH LOWER VISIBILITIES POSSIBLE AS TEMPS FALL TO THEIR DEWPOINTS. THUS...WILL MENTION TEMPORARY IFR CONDITIONS AT KTRI TOWARDS SUNRISE.
