.AVIATION /08Z MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/...
As of 08z...Weak high pressure was south of New England and a 
complex area of low pressure was over Georgia and Srn SC. The 
area of low pressure will slowly spread into the Carolinas 
this morning. 

Dry air that is a result of the high to the north was keeping SBY 
mainly dry and VFR early this morning. In the mean time...areas
of light rain were moving through the rest of the TAF sites 
with periodic MVFR conditions. Expect rain to become more 
widespread later this morning/aftn with IFR ceilings increasing
in coverage from south to north after 12-14z. Winds will 
continue from the northeast and will be gusty at times (15-23 
kts) especially near the coast. 

OUTLOOK...Low pressure will strengthen near the Carolina coast 
tonight and Tuesday spreading heavier rain and more consistent 
IFR conditions to the area. Winds will be mainly from the east 
and will be gusty over eastern portions. As low pressure moves 
up the coast rain and degraded aviation conditions will begin to
diminish by early Wednesday. Dry weather is in store Thursday 
and Friday as high pressure builds over the Southeast States.
