.AVIATION /00Z SUNDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/...
VFR conditions expected for the majority of the period. 

Quiet weather continues across the region, with breezy winds being 
the primary issue right now. Cold front has now made its way through 
all of our TAF sites, with dry air filtering in behind it. As a 
result, VFR conditions are being experienced and are expected to 
continue through the period. Winds are either northwesterly or will 
shift in that direction shortly at all sites. Pressure gradient 
should relax over the next few hours, so gusts should diminish after 
03z or so. Expectation is that surface winds will stay up in the 5-8 
knot range over night though, so we shouldn't go completely calm. By 
mid morning tomorrow, we'll start to see winds pick up again for the 
afternoon hours. Expect 8-12 knot northwesterly winds to be common 
across the area underneath sunny skies. 

EXTENDED AVIATION OUTLOOK...Restrictions not expected through 
the weekend and early next week as dry air and high pressure 
moves in behind a cold front.
