    The following discussion is for KPHL, KPNE, KTTN, KABE, KRDG, KILG,
    KMIV, KACY and surrounding areas.
    
    Through tonight... VFR. West-northwest winds 5 to 10 kt becoming
    light and variable or calm this evening and tonight. CIGs gradually
    developing overnight but remaining VFR. High confidence.
    
    Wednesday-Wednesday night... Trends continue to be more optimistic
    with the Wednesday forecast. Some light rain or snow remains
    possible for most of the area, which could lead to some
    restrictions. However, would not be surprised if Wednesday remains
    mostly VFR and in fact think that is probably most likely. Higher
    confidence in VFR for Wednesday night as any light snow ends. Winds
    mostly light and variable through Wednesday afternoon, though should
    favor a northeast direction if anything. A 5 to 10 kt northwest wind
    develops for the evening and overnight. Moderate confidence
    overall.
    
    Outlook...
    
    Wednesday night through Thursday night...VFR with northwest
    winds 10 to 20 kt Wednesday evening gradually diminishing
    through Thursday, likely becoming light and variable Thursday
    afternoon and night. Moderate confidence.
    
    Friday through Saturday...Restrictions possible with low CIGs
    and potential rain/showers, especially Friday night and Saturday
    morning. Light south or southeast winds Friday and Friday night
    becoming south or southwest and increasing to 10 to 15 kt with
    higher gusts on Saturday. Low confidence.
