For the forecast, today we can expect unsettled conditions with mostly cloudy skies with the occasional break. There is still the possibility of isolated showers in this light Northwesterly flow aloft. The flow will change tomorrow to a strong Westerly flow as a moist low moves down the coast bringing light precipitation to our area. Wednesday should see some lingering cloud in the morning as a dry Northerly flow aloft moves into the area. The upper level ridge developing will give us sunny skies into the weekend with seasonal temperatures. There is a chance of snow in the upper elevations Tuesday evening into Wednesday morning.

    As of 07:00 Hrs we have overcast skies with unlimited visibility.

    Looking unsettled for today, mix of cloud with sunny breaks.

   Moist trough moving down the coast for tomorrow.
