NWS Raleigh Aviation Forecast Discussion
(complete Forecast Discussion)

.AVIATION /18Z MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/... 
AS OF 150 PM MONDAY...

A COLD FRONT NEAR KFAY WILL SETTLE SOUTHEASTWARD AND OUT OF THE RAH 
FORECAST AREA THROUGH SUNSET. WHILE THERE REMAINS A VERY SLIGHT 
CHANCE OF A SHOWER OR STORM AT KFAY WITH THE PASSAGE OF THE FRONT 
DURING THE NEXT FEW HOURS...IT IS MORE LIKELY THAT ANY SUCH STORM 
DEVELOPMENT WILL OCCUR ALONG COASTAL/SE NC WHERE LOW AND DEEP LAYER 
MOISTURE IS (MARGINALLY) MORE SUPPORTIVE. OTHERWISE...A BREEZY 
WESTERLY WIND WILL GRADUALLY VEER TO NW...AND SUBSIDE AROUND 
SUNSET...WITH LIGHT NW WINDS EXPECTED OVERNIGHT. DIURNAL CUMULUS 
SHOULD LIKEWISE DIMINISH AROUND SUNSET...THOUGH THE PASSAGE OF A 
TRAILING MID LEVEL TROUGH OVERNIGHT COULD PRODUCE A FEW PATCHES OF 
HIGH STRATOCUMULUS OR LOW ALTOCUMULUS PER UPSTREAM/OH VALLEY 
OBSERVATIONS...AND NWP GUIDANCE. 

PREDOMINATELY VFR CONDITIONS SHOULD OTHERWISE PREVAIL THROUGH MOST 
OF THE FORECAST PERIOD...AS CANADIAN HIGH PRESSURE BECOMES CENTERED 
OVER THE TN VALLEY AND CENTRAL APPALACHIANS THROUGH MID-WEEK...THEN 
YIELDS TO AN INVERTED SURFACE TROUGH AND SMALL CHANCE OF A SHOWER OR 
STORM BY FRI-SAT.
