.AVIATION /06Z TUESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/...
Ceilings should generally lower through the forecast period 
with periods of rainfall expected which will reduce visibility.

Showers will develop over the region this morning. Coverage
should be widespread and so we anticipate periods of rain at
all terminals from around 09Z to 18Z. Rainfall will likely
reduce visibilities for periods of time. The deepest moisture
will move out of the region late today and shower activity may
decrease after 18Z. Instability is weak so thunderstorm coverage
will be isolated or scattered. With lower confidence in
thunderstorms affecting the TAF sites we have not included it in
the TAFs for this issuance. 

As moisture and isentropic lift increase over the region,
ceilings will lower to MVFR or IFR with restrictions continuing
for most if not all of the daytime. Ceilings will lower again 
overnight with abundant low level moisture promoting areas of 
low clouds. IFR or LIFR ceilings will be possible overnight at 
all TAF sites.

EXTENDED AVIATION OUTLOOK...An unsettled weather pattern will
remain in place for much of the extended. Expect at least a
chance of showers and thunderstorms each day.
