.AVIATION [06Z TAF Issuance]...

GOES fog/IR diff channel and nightime microphysics imagery are
picking up on some low stratus forming south of KCLL. This low
stratus should spread over most of the area and likely impact
terminals with MVFR ceilings later tonight into the morning.
Southerly winds should be around 5 to 10 knots so expect ceilings
not to drop too much below 2000 feet. Ceilings are still expected
to improve around 15Z with winds starting to mix. Winds could
become gusty in the afternoon tomorrow. Pattern look similar for
Saturday night going into Sunday.
