.AVIATION /17Z SUNDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/...
High confidence in VFR throughout the TAF period. 

Low pressure will move northwest of the area through the period and 
push a weak frontal boundary near the NC/SC border. As a result, a 
tight pressure gradient between the low/front and high pressure off 
of the SC coast will keep winds elevated through 23Z. Wind gusts 
will diminish with sunset but will remain 8 to 10 knots through 
10/16Z out of the southwest. This should inhibit morning fog at 
KAGS. As the front stalls to the north, high-res models indicate 
some shower activity 10/03Z-09Z in the Midlands (KCAE/KCUB), however 
with an initially dry airmass confidence is too low to include in 
tAFs at this time. Low clouds will begin moving into the terminals 
around 10/09z, and deeper moisture moving into GA should cause 

EXTENDED AVIATION OUTLOOK...MVFR restrictions possible Tuesday night 
and Wednesday as wedge conditions develop with the front draped just 
to the south of the terminals with showers and high low-level 
moisture. Improving conditions Thursday into Friday with high 
pressure and drier air.
