PERSISTENT MVFR CIGS WILL REMAIN PIVOTED AROUND A 850 MB FRONT
THIS AFTERNOON, WHILE DRY AIR COMING FROM THE NORTHEAST ATTEMPTS
TO SCATTER CLOUD DECK BY 00Z TONIGHT. BEST CHANCES FOR THIS
OCCURRING IS OVER KMHK. OTHERWISE EXPECT THE MVFR STRATUS TO
REMAIN IN PLACE OVERNIGHT WITH SOME GUIDANCE INDICATING FOG
DEVELOPING UNDERNEATH THE FRONTAL INVERSION. THIS UNUSUAL SCENARIO
FOR THIS TIME OF YEAR LEADS TO UNCERTAINTY IN HOW LOW VISIBILITIESWILL
BE BASED ON WHAT OCCURS WITH THE STRATUS THIS AFTERNOON. FOR NOW,
HAVE INTRODUCED IFR 10Z TO 15Z FOR LOW STRATUS AND FOG AT ALL
