.AVIATION /18Z TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY/...
Cold front crossing the region as of 18Z. PCPN to end soon at
RIC/SBY but just getting started across SERN TAF sites. Given the
sporatic nature to the shower activity, decided to add a TEMPO
group for lower CIGS/VSBYS in showers as some mdt to lclly heavy
rainfall reported across the region. Kept thunder out attm given
no lightning strikes anywhere across the fa, but that could
quickly change over the next few hours as the front moves into 
the warmer air near the coast.

Sct showers end this evening with the attention turning to fog
potential tonight given a wet ground and high dew point temps. 
Have indicated MVFR conditions late tonight at all sites except
ORF, with some guidance taking progging locally dense fog towards
sunrise. 

Next batch of pcpn advances norhward across the piedmont after 12Z 
as low pressure along the front moves north. Thus, brought back
rain to RIC but kept coastal areas dry for now. 

OUTLOOK...Unsettled weather conditions expected through the end
of the work week as waves of low pressure lift along the cold
front. Showers with late day tstms possible each day.
