klrd/kcot early this afternoon with precipitation to diminish in areal
coverage by late afternoon. Have vcsh through 21z at klrd with amendment
to taf possible if precipitation becomes more certain to impact terminal.
Omitted ts at this time due to isolated nature of lightning and cumulonimbus.
Significantly drier airmass aloft is overspreading kcrp/kvct/kali
this afternoon with VFR expeceted to prevail. A brief isolated rain showers may flirt
with kcrp/kali early this afternoon...but isolated/brief nature precludes
mention in tafs at this time. All terminals expeceted to be rain free and VFR
most of tonight. Areas of fog may try to develop over area terminals
late tonight...but stronger winds just above the surface should prevent
widespread development. Have gone IFR visibilities for a couple of hours late
tonight at kali and MVFR at kvct...with VFR prevailing at
kcrp/klrd. Mainly clear skies and improving visibilities Monday morning. Erly
surface winds 10 to 15 kts and occasionally gusty this afternoon becoming
