For the Forecast, an upper level trough is influencing our zone keeping the air mass cool with unsettled conditions.  More sun than yesterday with light winds. Scattered showers may develop this evening, as the air mass becomes unstable, easing off very late tonight. Saturday is still looking dry and unsettled in the morning, with a cold front moving in for Saturday night. Sunday is looking cloudy with light precipitation through the day.  Unsettled weather for Monday, as a ridge of high pressure begins to build for Tuesday into Wednesday. Guesstimates: trace to 2 cm for Sunday morning, 4-6 cm by Monday morning.

                               As of 07:00 Hrs we have scattered cloud with unlimited visibility.

    Precipitation heading our way for Saturday night into Sunday.
