Aviation Weather Discussion for Eastern Kentucky

(For the 18Z TAFS through 18Z Wednesday afternoon) ISSUED AT 207 PM EDT TUE AUG 21 2018 Convection has expanded in coverage across the area this afternoon. Thunder has been very isolated thus far but with continued heating and destabilization expect the threat for thunder to increase through the afternoon. In addition, we are beginning to see signs of lightning from satellite sources. Therefore kept VCTS at all sites. Surface cold front will push east of our area sometime this evening. With FROPA lower CIGS and the possibility of some light fog will become the focus of the forecast. Guidance suggests some IFR/LIFR CIGS through the pre- dawn hours Wednesday. Could not rule out a few rain showers either. Gradient southwest winds have been decent so far today, around 10 kts with higher gusts. Guidance suggest these will decrease through the afternoon and veer increasingly out of the northwest with FROPA.
