2240 meters      -4, Winds were 10-20 KPH from the NNE

For the forecast, unsettled conditions for today as an upper level ridge off shore and an upper level trough to the East influences our zone with a North to Northwest flow. A stratus layer has formed which should allow sunny breaks in the valley later this morning. It will lift later and we will likely see some convective cloud build later this morning. The ridge will move East later today bringing sunny skies for Wednesday morning. Convective activity in the afternoon will bring in clouds with the possibility of showers Wednesday afternoon. Unsettled again for Thursday with the offshore flow bringing clouds and showers in the afternoon. The next front will arrive early Friday morning with overcast skies and light precipitation into early Saturday morning. As of now Saturday is looking unsettled, the models are all over the map for the weekend so more on that as we get closer to that time frame. Freezing levels will rise to 2000 meters today, 2300 meters for Wednesday and Thursday. Friday should see a drop in the freezing level to 1900 meters.

    As of 07:30hours in the alpine we have clear skies with unlimited visibility.

    Moisture heading our way for Late Thursday night.
