Aviation...18z taf discussion.

VFR conditions for the most of this cycle. Some IFR to MVFR visible
is likely at all terminals for a few hours tonight as low level
moisture combines with light to calm winds to provide for fog
devevopment. Fog will clear out after 13z Friday and winds will
remain light.

Update...for morning discussion.


Cloud cover has been fairly dense this morning across a good
portion of the mid-state. This has affected the hourly temperature
curve a bit. Areas along and north of Interstate 40 are starting
to see some sun...but areas south of Interstate 40...especially
near the Alabama state line and the southern plateau...will struggle
to reach forecast highs today. Will drop them a couple of degrees.

The other question is the weak radar returns being seen over the
southwest portion of the state and our southwest counties. Some
brief light rain may be seen over the next several hours...but it
should barely be enough to wet roadways as associated lift remains
weak. Will hold firm on the 20 pop down there with this update.

Updates already out.
