.AVIATION /15Z THURSDAY THROUGH MONDAY/...
Outside of IFR conditions at SBY, conditions are generally VFR
across the region. Expect SBY to improve quickly after sunrise. Broken
to overcast ceilings have lowered to 4-6k feet AGL. Previous MVFR
ceiling trends have not verified thus far this morning, so have
pushed back MVFR conditions inland. Winds are generally calm. 

A cold front pushes across the region late morning into the
afternoon. Broken to overcast ceilings will lower to MVFR for a
brief period along the front, with clearing skies post frontal.
Isolated to widely scattered showers are possible, but rainfall
amounts will be light. VFR conditions return all sites this
afternoon as Canadian high pressure builds into the region.
Surface winds become west to southwest around 10 knots this
afternoon.

High pressure builds into the area Thursday night through Saturday.
High pressure slides offshore Sunday as another cold front
approaches from the west. This cold front crosses the region Sunday
night into Monday. with a chance for rain.
