    At KCLT and elsewhere: An upper low spinning from VA down into
    eastern NC will continue to affect the terminals in NC with low
    cloud ceilings through tonight. The cloud bases should remain in
    the lower part of VFR at KCLT and KHKY until dusk when the boundary
    layer shrinks allowing the clouds to drop down to MVFR. Cloud bases
    were already MVFR over the NC mtns, so KAVL keeps a prevailing MVFR
    through tonight. Guidance suggests the development of fog and an
    IFR-level low stratus deck in the mtn valleys around KAVL in the
    pre-dawn hours, but confidence in that solution is low. The models
    have overdone this restriction for the last few runs. Prefer to
    keep them MVFR at worst for the time being. Meanwhile, the upstate
    SC terminals should stay VFR through the period. Wind will remain
    generally N through the period, with occasional gusts through
    peak heating this afternoon. Some gentle veering to NNE will take
    place Monday morning. Low clouds should lift and scatter late
    Monday morning.
    
    Outlook: Northerly flow will continue thru much of the week. Low
    precip chances and generally VFR.
