Another unsettled day, with mostly cloudy skies today as the dirty upper level ridge tries to build. Unfortunately the system North of our zone will spill cloud into the area.
A very weak trough will move in for tomorrow but it looks relatively dry so another cloudy day for tomorrow. A high amplitude upper ridge will start to build late Friday evening bringing dry and warm weather for Saturday. This ridge will strengthen Sunday and with an offshore flow will raise the freezing level from 1800 meters on Saturday to 2800 meters by Sunday. Monday is looking unsettled as another trough starts to move into our zone for Tuesday. Models are not totally agreeing on this period so more on that later. Looks like we are in for a fantastic weekend.

                               As of 07:00 hrs we have overcast skies and unlimited visibility.

    Could be wet Friday, but the air mass will come in fairly dry.

    Just like the snow, so many textures!!

    Standing here in a windstorm could prove catastrophic.

    Awesome day on the Beach!

    The end to another great West Coast day.
