Update...for 12z aviation


Surface high pressure has led to good radiational cooling across
middle Tennessee...resulting in frost and/or fog. IFR-MVFR fog will
affect ckv on and off through 14z. But thereafter...all terminals
will see VFR conditions and light NE winds through most of this
taf period. Other than a few higher clouds advecting in towards
dawn Friday...high pressure overhead will again allow fog to form
across portions of middle Tennessee. Looks like csv will have the best
chance for fog so went IFR there towards 12z Friday...with MVFR
visibilities elsewhere for late in this 24-hour taf period.
