For the forecast, the strong upper level ridge will bring another nice day with warm temperatures. Later today we should see some changes when a push of marine air brings clouds and the chance of some light snow fall in the alpine. Tuesday is also looking moist and cloudy but with some unsettled conditions later in the day. Wednesday is looking unsettled with a Northwesterly flow pattern that could bring some showery weather or an upper and surface ridge may build. Models are still not in agreement for Wednesday. Thursday is looking cloudy with some precipitation in the forecast. Beyond Thursday it is still up in the air, more on that tomorrow. As of now Friday is looking unsettled. Guesstimates: Trace to 2 cm for Tuesday morning, trace to 2 cm for Wednesday morning,  3-5 cm for Friday morning. Freezing levels should drop back down later today to 1300 meters. FL for Tuesday night  could go as low as 1200 meters.

                             As of 07:00 hours we have scattered cloud and unlimited visibility.

    Looking warm for today.

    Could see some snow in the alpine for Tuesday morning.

    Looks like some precipitation for Thursday!
