    Expecting mostly VFR conditions today as high pressure over the
    East Coast reestablishes itself further west. The 3000-5000 ft
    cloud deck from early this morning has begun eroding from the
    southwest and a couple locations have already lost their ceiling
    for the day. Some patchy MVFR ceilings are present over the area
    but generally think there is only a small window where this will
    persist this morning at spots like KTOL and KMFD. This cloud
    deck should continue to pull away and everyone should be VFR and
    perhaps without a ceiling by this afternoon. Tonight, a surface
    trough will approach the area from the west and there could be
    some rain over Indiana and Michigan that could creep into the
    far western terminals overnight, but not too confident in that
    at this time though so have only introduced MVFR ceilings at
    KTOL and KFDY and can better refine in later packages. Other
    than that, winds through the period will generally be light and
    from the south.
    OUTLOOK...Periods of non-VFR cigs/vsbys possible on Friday
    through the weekend as a low pressure system attempts to move
    into the region.
