.AVIATION...
MVFR CIGS continued to plague ktxk and will likely remain the 
case for the next few hours, before it finally scours out. 
Scattered -SHRA have been ongoing since earlier this morning just
east of klfk, with additional isolated -SHRA having developed 
south of kshv early this afternoon. Additional precipitation 
elsewhere may be hard-pressed to develop given increased 
subsidence /mitigates the development of rainfall/ has been 
infiltrating the region from the west. Thus, have elected to only 
insert a VCTS at kshv and klfk at this time. Will of course amend 
as necessary. Any lingering precipitation will gradually dissipate
shortly after sunset. East-southeast wind speeds of 4-8 kts this 
afternoon will become light and variable /and for some locations 
calm/ overnight whilst computer models hint at VFR-MVFR CIGS and 
VIS due to fog. Have inserted fog at a few terminals where 
confidence is highest, but do not feel very confident with regards
MVFR CIGS /will only an insert of SCT where appropriate/. By 
sunrise, winds will have backed to the east-northeast at 5 kts or 
less, due to Subtropical Alberto making landfall along the FL 
Panhandle/AL Gulf coasts.
