.AVIATION /08Z FRIDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/...
As of 230 AM EDT Friday...

VFR conditions at all TAF sites to start the 06Z TAF forecast 
period with light S to SE winds. MVFR ceilings will likely 
develop after 08-10Z across the region with the highest 
potential coverage across the W and close to the immediate 
coast. Any MVFR ceilings are expected to dissipate after 14Z. 
Patchy fog may also try to develop early this morning...but it
is not expected to be as widespread as Thu morning. VFR 
conditions expected for all TAF sites by mid-late this morning
and will through the remainder of the forecast period. Winds 
turn to the S and eventually the SW across the region...generally
aob 10 kt. SHRAs and tstms return Sat as a cold front settles
over the local area. Localized MVFR conditions possible. MVFR 
or even IFR conditions possible Sun into Mon as the front 
stalls/lingers just S of the FA and NE winds bring low level 
moisture into the area along with SCT SHRAs. Highest probs would
be at RIC and SBY. The front returns back N early next week.
