For the forecast, a weak low pressure is moving down the coast bringing overcast conditions and light showers to the area in a Westerly flow aloft. A drying trend for tonight with unsettled conditions for Tuesday with a slight chance of some intermittent showers. High builds for Wednesday into Friday with mostly sunny weather. By Friday we should see some cloud development as another low moves down the coast bringing unsettled weather for Saturday. Models are not in agreement to what will happen on the weekend but looks like cool showery weather Saturday, deteriorating on Sunday. Will update on Thursday morning.

Update September 22, 2016-- a weak upper level ridge will bring another nice day to the area Thursday in a Northwesterly flow aloft.  By tonight we should see some cloud move into the area
as a weakening front moves onto the coast in a split flow. We can expect mostly cloudy skies and light rain showers Friday. Saturday may see some cloud in the morning as another weak ridge builds
with unsettled and drier conditions into Sunday.
