ANOTHER CHALLENGING FORECAST FOR THE PERIOD WITH TIMING OF
CONVECTION AND CEILINGS.  VFR CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED THIS AFTERNOON
INTO THE EARLY EVENING BEFORE A COMPLEX OF STORMS IS EXPECTED TO
MOVE THROUGH THE AREA OVERNIGHT.  TIMING OF THIS POTENTIAL SYSTEM IS
STILL UNCERTAIN, BUT A BEST GUESS HAS BEEN CONVEYED IN THE TAF
THROUGH VCTS FROM 02-03Z TO 11-12Z.  A MAJORITY OF MODELS ARE
BRINGING LOWER MVFR/IFR CEILINGS IN WITH THE COMPLEX AND THROUGH THE
MORNING, HOWEVER, BELIEVE THEY HAVE BEEN OVERDOING THE LOW CLOUD THE
PAST COUPLE DAYS SO HAVE INCLUDED A SCATTERED LOW DECK WITH BKN VFR
CEILINGS FOR NOW.
