For the forecast, a Southwesterly flow aloft will bring mostly unsettled conditions for today with a slight chance of some intermittent showers. A cool moist low pressure system will be parked off the coast for most of the week with unsettled weather into next weekend. Wednesday afternoon into Thursday morning is looking like the wettest period as a frontal band moves onshore. Models are not in agreement on the forecast for the September long weekend but it looks like it will be slightly cooler than normal values, with a mix of sun and cloud. Good chance the high pressure in the Pacific could bring some decent weather for the long weekend.
