Aviation Weather Discussion for Eastern Kentucky

(For the 06Z TAFS through 06Z Wednesday night) ISSUED AT 227 AM EDT WED AUG 4 2021 The scattered convection over our far eastern counties from earlier in the night is continuing to dissipate as we head further into the overnight hours. Some clearing in the cloud cover can be seen on satellite , and has allowed for further development of fog. KSJS in particular is being hit hard by fog, and conditions are anticipated to remain at VLIFR levels until around 12z or so. Some patchy fog is also possible further west, potentially bringing KJKL, KLOZ, and KSME some MVFR visibilities. KSYM has the best chance of remaining fog-free overnight. Fog is expected to dissipate out by around 13-14z, allowing for VFR conditions to return for the rest of Wednesday, outside of a possible heavier thunderstorm passing over in the afternoon/evening. Shower and storm activity should dissipate going through the evening, with more valley fog once again possible overnight. Light and variable winds overnight will become more northeasterly Wednesday afternoon, though still remaining generally 5 kts or less, before relaxing again into Wednesday night.
