.AVIATION /12Z WEDNESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY/...
As of 635 AM EDT Wednesday... 

Prevailing VFR conditions will continue for the majority of the
12z/17 TAF period...Localized MVFR CIGs across central/SE VA
should lift by 14z. Otherwise, VFR today with CIGs aoa 7000ft. 
Winds will mostly be from the SE to SSW at ~10kt. Shower chances
increase later this aftn and especially this evening (highest 
PoPs are across northern portions of the area INVOF SBY). It 
will mostly be VFR except on the eastern shore where MVFR CIGs 
are possible this evening-tonight. Shower chances continue 
through 06z before the precipitation moves offshore. Cannot rule
out an isolated tstm between 00-06z (mainly at SBY).

Outlook: Mainly VFR early Thu except for lingering flight 
restrictions at SBY. Drier conditions move in for most of 
Thursday through Friday morning. Low pressure and a cold front 
will bring another chance for showers and flight restrictions 
later Friday into Saturday.
