Aviation...
patchy MVFR conditions continue across areas southeast of the cold
front moving through the area today, but this is becoming less of
an issue at the taf sites with the arrival of the front. Some rain
(or more likely virga) will continue, mainly behind the front. The
most likely airports to get rain are at kgag, kwwr and kpnc where
a tempo group has been included. Some light rain is not out of the
question elsewhere, but not high enough chances for a tempo group.

Discussion...
a cold front will move through the area this morning. Scattered
showers will persist today while a upper wave pivots through the
area. Overall, cooler weather is expected the next couple of days,
before warming significantly late this week as upper ridge moves
over the plains. Troughing redevelops form the Canadian prairies
into the southwestern United States late this week with our next
chance of scattered showers/storms Friday through Monday as this
trough approaches.
