.AVIATION /18Z THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/...
VFR conditions are forecast through this evening. The main 
concern is fog during the early morning hours Friday. 

Low pressure near the Florida East Coast will be moving farther
off the Southeast Coast tonight with ridging becoming more
dominate in the forecast area. Low-level moisture in the onshore
flow associated with the low combined with heating could
possibly help support showers in the forecast area this
afternoon, but with just shallow moisture and building upper
ridging the chance should remain very low. The high-resolution 
models display isolated shower coverage at most. 

The main forecast concern tonight is the fog potential. There
should be lingering low-level moisture associated with the
onshore flow. The models indicate less boundary layer wind
compared to the previous night and aloft it should be drier
associated with the upper ridging. All the NAM and GFS MOS plus
many SREF members indicate IFR fog developing. Heating and 
mixing should result in a return to VFR conditions later Friday 
morning. We followed the GFS LAMP for the timing.

EXTENDED AVIATION OUTLOOK...A cold front with limited moisture 
will bring breezy conditions Saturday.
