.AVIATION /09Z WEDNESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY/...
LOW PRESSURE MOVING UP THE COAST WILL BRING A DECENT SLUG OF
PRECIPITATION TO THE LOCAL AREA OVERNIGHT AND WEDNESDAY. CEILINGS
WILL LOWER TO IFR/LIFR OVERNIGHT THROUGH MUCH OF WEDNESDAY AT ALL
TAF SITES. COLDER AIR WRAPPING AROUND THE COASTAL LOW MAY ALLOW
FOR A BRIEF PERIOD OF -RASN WEDNESDAY AFTN/EVENING NW OF KRIC. 
GUSTY N-NW WINDS DEVELOP LATER THIS MORNING AND AVERAGE
10-20KT WITH HIGHER GUSTS OF 25-35KT LIKELY AT THE IMMEDIATE
COAST. WINDS ARE EXPECTED TO DIMINISH FROM WEST TO EAST THROUGH
WEDNESDAY EVENING.

A BRIEF REPRIEVE IN ADVERSE CONDITIONS SHOULD BE ANTICIPATED LATE 
WED EVENING AND OVERNIGHT...HOWEVER A SECONDARY LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM 
SHOULD BRING ANOTHER ROUND OF PRECIPITATION TO THE AREA EARLY
THURSDAY MORNING THROUGH EARLY AFTN BEFORE MOVING OFF THE COAST
AND DISSIPATING. COLDER TEMPS IN PLACE WILL SUPPORT A LITTLE BETTER
CHANCE FOR -SN OR -RASN ALONG AND NW OF A GENERAL LINE FROM KSBY-
KRIC-KFVX. VISIBILITIES SHOULD IMPROVE MUCH FASTER THAN CIGS...WHICH
ARE THEN EXPECTED TO IMPROVE/LIFT/BREAK-UP BY THURSDAY EVENING.
