.AVIATION...
Periods of VFR/MVFR and IFR expected at all sites through the
period as a moist airmass remains over the region. With that,
carried vicinity sh/ts at all sites through the afternoon, with
tempos at each site as well using CAM guide and current radar
trends for timing. Cigs/visb will lower in association with any
heavier convection, as well as tonight when the BL decouples.
Think tonight could be quite foggy given the amount of moisture
present, thus all sites feature MVFR/IFR restrictions for such,
with LIFR favored at TRI for a few hours near daybreak. Another
wet day in store on Sunday with cigs/visb recovering to low VFR by
periods end with a reintroduction of vcts. Winds through the
period will remain generally sly and in the 5-8kts range, calming
overnight.
