Discussion...

A fairly strong cold front continues to move across the County Warning Area this
evening. The upper trough is still hanging back well to our west
with enough lift for Post-frontal showers. This activity will
continue for the next several hours and should diminish by 12z.

Aviation...
06z taf discussion.

The cold front has pushed to near kmgm. Widespread Post-frontal
showers will continue north of the front through 12z. The air mass has
stabilized enough to preclude any more ts development. Rainfall
intensity is fairly light with visibilities mostly above 6 miles...so
only included vcsh. Ceilings will stay in the MVFR range through 12z and
then rise from the northwest to southeast as drier low level air advects
southward. Ceilings should scatter between 15-17z for most locations.
