Latest Aviation Discussion


LAST UPDATED:  724 PM FRIDAY, JANUARY 28 2022

.AVIATION /01Z SATURDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/...
Update...Based on upstream obs across GA, amended to increase 
wind speeds this evening/early tonight. Wind gusts 30 kts or 
higher reported right behind the front/wind shift to NW. 

Previous discussion...
VFR early this evening with mid level cloud cover. Strong upper
energy moving through tonight with an accompanying cold front.
Latest CAMs and regional radar loops indicate precipitation
developing this evening and early tonight to our north, then
swinging through the central and NE FA tonight. A rain and snow
mix is expected initially with a changeover to all light snow.
The best chance of precip will be mainly E/NE of the TAF sites,
but may affect CAE/CUB/OGB. Expect resulting decline in 
CIGs/VSBYs, mainly MVFR. Kept it VFR at AGS/DNL as no precip 
expected there. Expect a wind shift to NW, with an increase in
speed, behind the front tonight, with breezy NW winds continuing
through Saturday. A return to VFR at CAE/CUB/OGB expected late 
tonight/early Saturday morning.

EXTENDED AVIATION OUTLOOK...No significant impacts to aviation
expected Saturday night through Wednesday.
