    A couple of residual showers remain in the area as a surface low
    pull northeast of the area but not expecting too much in the
    way of new development with the loss of heating overnight. Main
    concerns overnight, aside from a stray shower hitting a
    terminal, are lower ceilings moving in and out of the area.
    Across the board, the broken/overcast cloud deck is around
    7000-8000 feet but some lower stratus is developing and moving
    around the area. Most of this should be over 3000 feet for VFR
    conditions but can see some MVFR at KMFD, KCAK, and KYNG where
    it rained on Saturday night. KERI will have the most significant
    impacts today though with a convergence zone setting up over the
    area. The stratus has settled to MVFR levels at KERI and do not
    see anything that will lift the ceilings anytime soon until
    perhaps early tomorrow morning with northeasterly winds from
    the lake.
    Rain chances for today are slim across the board, although areas
    furthest east will have the best shot at precipitation this
    afternoon. Put in a vicinity mention in the KYNG and KERI TAFs
    but any convection will be widely scattered and not as impactful
    as the super soakers the past couple days. With the low
    departing a region, a residual surface trough will move through
    the area and winds will shift around from the west to the
    northwest and even eventually to the northeast in the terminals
    near the lakeshore, all as the trough passes through the area.
    OUTLOOK...Non-VFR conditions possible from Tuesday afternoon through
    Wednesday night in showers and thunderstorms.
