.AVIATION...
06Z TAF discussion:
IFR/LIFR conditions will overspread the area through mid morning
with conditions improving to MVFR by late morning. MVFR/VFR
ceilings will dominate the afternoon into the evening. Scattered
showers will increase from the south by late afternoon with a few
thunderstorms between PIB and HBG during the evening./GG/

&&

.DISCUSSION...
Stratus creeping northward on sat imagery this evening. Mixing out
in the north earlier today not only evident in lack of
clouds...but also in the much lower dewpoints (40s). Given the
ample llvl moisture with recent rain and high rivers and
creeks...could see the development of some patchy fog in the
overnight hours...maybe some drizzle in the low clouds and such
light flow in the boundary layer. Not really much to change in the
forecast overall with the exception of some hourly trends.
