    At KCLT and elsewhere: Looks like most of the action will take place
    before the start of operations this morning as a pre-frontal band of
    broken showers moves through followed by some low cloudiness ahead
    of the cold front. The latest guidance has trended toward keeping at
    least a temporary MVFR ceiling restriction in the wake of the shower
    band east of the mtns, until a more westerly flow aloft brings
    some downslope flow to mix out the lowest cloud deck. This will
    be handled east of the mtns with either a prevailing or temporary
    ceiling restriction in the MVFR range. Think any IFR will be too
    brief to mention. Wind should stay light SW ahead of the front,
    which will cross the region thru the mid-morning hours. However,
    even after the front moves through, wind direction should stay
    SW or WSW, until this evening when a switch to NW finally takes
    place. High pressure and dry air moves in this afternoon and that
    should keep us VFR outside the mtns.
    Outlook: Dry high pressure builds into the area through the
    weekend. Morning flight restrictions will be possible due to fog and
    low stratus development. The next chance of rainfall, thunderstorms,
    and associated restrictions will be early to middle next week as
    a cold front sags into the region from the northwest.
