For the forecast, another nice day with high broken cirrus cloud. As the day moves along it is likely a marine stratus layer will move into our area, as the low pressure system pushes the dominant upper ridge inland in a Southwesterly flow aloft.  Friday we will see cooler cloudy weather with the chance of some drizzle in our zone. Saturday and Sunday are looking cloudy and moist as the low slowly moves east. As of now Monday and Tuesday are looking unsettled. Freezing level today will be around 3400 meters, Friday will see a FL start around 2800 meters drop to 2200 meters by the evening. Saturday and Sunday the FL should stay near the 2300 meter level, rising again Monday into Tuesday.

    As of 08:00 hrs we have high broken cirrus cloud and unlimited visibility.

    Low is moving into our area tomorrow.
