.AVIATION /12Z MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/...
As of 700 AM EDT Monday...

A mixture of MVFR/IFR CIGs will persist through the 12z taf 
period as the mean cloud height will remain ~1000 ft. Seeing 
scattered IFR CIGs of 500-900 ft but not at the taf sites
outside of RIC. Think RIC has the best shot of remaining IFR 
for the next couple of hours as upstream obs and moisture 
support locally lower CIGs. CIGs have been consistently higher 
than guidance with mainly MVFR CIGs at most terminals. Think 
this trend continues based on obs and therefore went with 
prevailing MVFR CIGs for the rest of the terminals. Light 
rain/drizzle continues through the 12z taf period with mainly 
3-6 SM VIS. Winds remain breezy with N winds 18-25 kt with 
gusts 25-35 kt (higher near the coast). Winds diminish some
tonight but remain gusty.

Rain chances and gusty N winds continue into Wed with MVFR/IFR
CIGs expected. Conditions slowly improve from W-E late Wed-Wed 
night as a coastal low pulls away from the coast. VFR conditions
return Thu-Fri.
