DISCUSSION...

Please see the 18Z aviation discussion below.

AVIATION...

While a mix of low-end VFR/high-end MVFR conditions will continue
through this evening with passing light rain showers at area TAF
sites, expect conditions to deteriorate overnight as a strong
storm system brings widespread moderate rain to the area
tonight through Saturday. Ceilings and visibilities will drop
through the night, with IFR conditions possible by early Saturday
morning. With temperatures expected to remain above freezing,
frozen precipitation is not currently expected. Winds will
maintain an easterly component through the forecast period, and
should remain below 15kt.
