Aviation Weather Discussion for Eastern Kentucky

(For the 12Z TAFS through 12Z Saturday morning) ISSUED AT 747 AM EDT FRI MAY 26 2017 VFR conditions expected to hold strong today and tonight as an approaching ridge of high pressure builds in. May still see some fog inside deeper valleys through mid this morning, but all TAF sites should remain fog free. Southwest winds will increase to 5-10 knots by mid-late morning through this afternoon before diminishing somewhat this evening. Will have to watch a potential round of showers and thunderstorms this evening near the Ohio River, but have kept any SH/TS or CB mention silent for now until trends in this development become better defined. Southwesterly low level wind shear may also warrant watching for this evening, but this currently looks too weak, around 30 knots, to be concerned with at this time.
