AN AREA OF CU/SC IS PUSHING SOUTH ACROSS WESTERN PORTIONS OF OUR AREA EARLY THIS EVENING. IN LOW LEVEL CAA...SOME OF THIS MAY TAKE A BIT LONGER TO DISSIPATE THEN WOULD NORMALLY BE EXPECTED SO WILL HANG ON TO SOME SCT VFR SC INTO TONIGHT FOR THE WESTERN TAF SITES. OTHERWISE...A MID LEVEL SHORT WAVE WILL ROTATE DOWN ACROSS THE EASTERN GREAT LAKES LATE TONIGHT INTO MONDAY. THIS WILL ALLOW FOR A BKN VFR SC DECK TO PUSH DOWN FROM THE NORTH ON MONDAY. A FEW LIGHT RAIN SHOWERS WILL ALSO BE POSSIBLE THROUGH THE DAY...PRIMARILY AT KCMH/KLUK. THE CHANCE APPEARS LOW ENOUGH THOUGH TO LEAVE ANY MENTION OUT OF THE TAFS AT THIS POINT. OUTLOOK...NO SIGNIFICANT WEATHER EXPECTED.
