.AVIATION /22Z FRIDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/...
THE FOLLOWING DISCUSSION IS FOR KPHL, KPNE, KTTN, KABE, KRDG,
KILG, KMIV, KACY AND SURROUNDING AREAS.

TAFS CONTINUED VFR FORECAST.

SEA AND BAY BREEZE FRONTS HAVE FORMED. THE SEA BREEZE FRONT HAS
MADE DECENT PROGRESS AND IT EXTENDS ALONG THE NEW JERSEY TURNPIKE
FROM CENTRAL NEW JERSEY DOWN TO ABOUT KVAY AROUND 600 PM. IT THEN
BENDS SOUTHWARD TOWARD KMIV. THE FRONT SHOULD CONTINUE TO MOVE
NORTHWEST WITH A WEAKENED VERSION PREDICTED TO GET TO THE KPHL
AREA AIRPORTS AROUND 00Z. WIND SPEEDS EVEN BEHIND THE FRONT
SHOULD BE 10 KNOTS OR LESS. PRECEDING THE FRONT AND AT OTHER
TERMINALS LIGHT WEST TO SOUTHWEST WINDS WILL PREVAIL.

FOR TONIGHT WINDS WILL BECOME LIGHT AND VARIABLE, SOUTHWEST IF
THERE IS A DIRECTION. THE CIRRUS IN THE TAFS IS MORE FOR THE
SECOND HALF OF THE NIGHT. NO FOG IS EXPECTED TO FORM.

ON SATURDAY. VFR CIG EXPECTED. MOST OF THE REMAINING TAF TIME IT
SHOULD BE AT THE ALTOCU LEVEL. SOUTHWEST WINDS WILL BE INCREASING
AS THE MORNING PROGRESS. WINDS IN THE LAST FORECAST GROUP
REPRESENT MORE OF THE LATTER HALF OF THE MORNING/EARLY AFTERNOON
EXPECTATIONS.

ISOLATED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS SHOULD OCCUR, BUT COVERAGE FOR
NOW APPEARS TOO SMALL AND LIKELY AFTER 18Z TO INCLUDE IN ANY
TERMINALS. CONFIDENCE TOO LOW FOR KPHL INCLUSION.
  
OUTLOOK... 
SUNDAY - MONDAY...SUB-VFR CONDITIONS EXPECTED IN AREAS OF SHOWERS
AND THUNDERSTORMS.

TUESDAY - WEDNESDAY...VFR.
