For the Forecast, the slow weakening low will bring cloudy weather for today with  showers and periods of light rain. Cooler temperatures are also forecasted for the next few days. Sunday looks to be cloudier with a bit more precipitation. The low will slowly move Southeast allowing for a weak high pressure aloft to build bringing unsettled weather for Monday and Tuesday. Models are in slight disagreement over some nicer weather Wednesday and Thursday. Freezing levels will rise to 2800 meters later today, drop back to around 2300 meters again tonight then slowly rise above 3000 meters for next week.

   As of 08:00 hrs we have overcast skies with variable visibility.

    Looks pretty cloudy for today.

    Unsettled weather for the middle of next week.
