.AVIATION /00Z TUESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/... 
As of 620 PM EST Monday...

VFR conditions will prevail for the first half of the 00z TAF
period. Skies are BKN-OVC250 for most locations at this hour,
with clouds continuing to move in and CIGs gradually lowering
through the overnight hours. Terminals should see CIGs of BKN- 
OVC040-060 generally after 06-08z. Rain will also push in 
Tuesday morning from west to east, with some light showers 
initially possible before sunrise. Some TAFs have -RA for most 
of the day, but it may be more intermittent at times, which is 
hard to pinpoint right now. Low-end MVFR CIGs will be 
possible after 16Z, with the potential for some patchy IFR 
CIGs. May see some breaks in the rain towards the latter portion
of the TAF period, but more rounds of rain will push in for the
evening and overnight.

Outlook: A series of weak systems cross the area for the mid to
late week time frame, with periods of rain and sub-VFR 
conditions expected.
