Aviation Weather Discussion for Eastern Kentucky

(For the 00Z TAFS through 00Z Thursday evening) ISSUED AT 734 PM EDT WED OCT 21 2020 Skies have quickly cleared out this evening with the loss of daytime heating/mixing. MVFR or worse fog will develop once again tonight, particularly in the deeper river valleys. Have followed the persistence idea at KLOZ, KSME, and KSYM, patterning after what had occurred last night. Did allow for a slightly later start for the visibility restrictions, given the relatively drier conditions compared to yesterday. The fog will lift and dissipate through 14z, with VFR conditions returning. While winds should be predominately southerly, they should remain under 5 kts during the period and could become variable at times. As such, just stuck with VRB wording at this time.
