.AVIATION /12Z SATURDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/... 
AS OF 705 AM SATURDAY...

HIGH CONFIDENCE THAT VFR CONDITIONS WILL DOMINATE THROUGH TONIGHT... 
WITH ONE NOTABLE EXCEPTION: SHALLOW PATCHY FOG WILL AFFECT RWI THIS 
MORNING UNTIL AROUND 13Z... PRODUCING PERIODS OF IFR VSBYS. A STRONG 
UPPER LEVEL DISTURBANCE WILL PUSH OFF THE SC/GA COAST EARLY THIS 
MORNING... AND SURFACE HIGH PRESSURE CENTERED TO OUR SOUTHWEST WILL 
NOSE NORTHEASTWARD OVER NC TODAY INTO TONIGHT. VERY DRY AIR FROM THE 
LOW LEVELS ON UP WILL MINIMIZE CLOUD COVER... AND ONLY SCATTERED TO 
BRIEFLY BROKEN CLOUDS BASED ABOVE 6 000 FT AGL ARE EXPECTED FROM MID 
EVENING UNTIL SHORTLY AFTER MIDNIGHT AS A DRY COLD FRONT APPROACHES 
NC FROM THE NORTH. WINDS WILL REMAIN VERY LIGHT... COMING FROM A 
SW/W/NW DIRECTION UNDER 6 KTS TODAY... BEFORE BECOMING LIGHT MAINLY 
NW TONIGHT.

LOOKING BEYOND 12Z EARLY SUN MORNING... SMALL CHANCE OF PATCHY 
SHALLOW FOG AT ALL SITES AROUND 12Z SUN... BUT OTHERWISE VFR 
CONDITIONS WILL DOMINATE THROUGH WEDNESDAY... WITH INITIAL DRY FLOW 
ALOFT FROM THE NW TRANSITIONING TO A BUILDING MID LEVEL RIDGE OVER 
THE SOUTHEAST STATES THROUGH EARLY NEXT WEEK. -GIH
