Discussion...
ridging to the east continues to suppress convection for much of
the area. Models are in pretty good agreement that convection will
be confined to the southwest/west so no real changes were made to
the forecast. Precipitable water values to the southwest were near 2 inches, so
will continue to monitor the area for heavy rainfall. Clouds and
temps were good.

18z taf discussion:
VFR conditions should prevail at most sites through the afternoon.
Low clouds may briefly lead to MVFR conditions. Light rain was
occurring around hbg, but not likely to cause restrictions to
visibility within the next hour or two. May add vcsh/shra to hbg
and Jan for late afternoon. Locations with rain may see some
patchy fog overnight. May add patchy fog to hbg. High pressure
will cause similar conditions tomorrow with most locations missing
the rain. Ceilings may lower briefly. Otherwise, VFR conditions
should prevail.
