Local Area Aviation Weather Discussion

.AVIATION /00Z TUESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/...
As of 743 PM Monday...

Variety of flight rules expected through the TAF period.

Large area of rain with an embedded weakening quasi-QLCS-ish
feature will impact much of the region this evening. Mix of 
IFR/MVFR CIGs and VSBYs are likely with the heavier precip this 
evening. Precip should end this evening from KHTS to KPKB with 
MVFR to perhaps low end VFR CIGs prevailing at that time. 
Farther south/east, precip will be slower to move out with poor 
flight rules possible through the night, especially from KBKW up
the mountains to KEKN. 

Lingering -SHRA in the morning near the mountains should end
with slow rising and mixing of ceilings across the area through
the day.

NNWrly sfc winds 5 to 10 kts this evening and overnight as a
cold front moves through. 

FORECAST CONFIDENCE AND ALTERNATE SCENARIOS THROUGH 00Z
WEDNESDAY...
     
FORECAST CONFIDENCE: Medium.

ALTERNATE SCENARIOS: End time of precip may vary from current
TAFs tonight. Some uncertainty exists regarding how poor flight
rules will become/remain later tonight.
