VFR conditions are expected through the 06z TAF period. A dry 
cold front is currently pushing south and will reach the NC 
border by ~08Z, and be south of the CWA by around sunrise. N
winds 5-10kt to start the TAFs across northern/central portions
of the area, SW 5-10kt shifting to the N/NW across the south.  
N/NE winds this morning swing back around to SE by late 
afternoon. Other than high clouds, it will be mostly sunny. 
Clouds increase/thicken/lower later tonight but CIGs are still
expected to stay at or above 5k ft through 06Z/Thu.

A chance for showers will mainly be confined to the northern 
areas after 06Z/Thu (SBY has the best chance). Winds shift to
the W/SW later Thu morning as the system moves off to the NE of
the region. Isolated/widely scattered showers/tstms possible 
Thu aftn/evening. VFR/dry Thu night-Fri into Sat. A cold front
brings increasing chances for shower/tstms by Sun aftn.
