    Stratus and fog will gradually redevelop as winds become light
    and moisture pools ahead of an approaching cold front, reducing
    ceilings and visibilities to MVFR over the next few hours. Cigs
    will then drop to IFR along and behind the cold front, while winds
    increase sharply and veer to the northwest. A few light showers
    are possible along the front, but the broad area of steady light
    to moderate rain will follow several hours behind and impact
    terminals mainly between 12z-18z Saturday. The lowest ceilings
    will gradually dissipate on Saturday afternoon, leaving behind a
    midlevel VFR stratus deck. Wind gusts on Saturday may reach or
    exceed 30 kts for much of the day, with sustained speeds between
    20-25 kts.
