    chance for cigs to linger after 18z for coastal tafs. High

    out times Saturday morning.

    coastal TAFS. the SE flow was beginning to pull low clouds away

    out times for Valley TAF sites. Moderate confidence for similar
    return of low clouds with MVFR and 30% chance for IFR cigs early
    this evening before going up a category. Scour out times should be
    an hour earlier with higher confidence.
