.AVIATION /14Z MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/... Ceilings have lifted to a mid level deck for most areas, and are expected to remain VFR through the day. Ceilings may drop to sub-VFR tonight through Tuesday night as a coastal low moves westward toward the Delmarva. There's some uncertainty how far west heavier rain and IFR ceilings reach tonight, so future updates may be needed. At a minimum, occasional light showers will continue with difficulty timing any breaks. Conditions should improve back to VFR on Wednesday. Showers will be possible at most of the terminals through Wednesday morning. Lesser coverage of showers is expected at CHO and MRB. Winds will remain gusty out of the north. VFR conditions are expected Thursday and Friday. A strong and mostly dry cold front is forecast to cross the area Friday afternoon, with breezy northwest winds possible behind the front.
