For the forecast, unsettled conditions with a relatively dry day as a short lived high pressure aloft affects the area into this evening. Saturday is looking wet, with moderate to heavy precipitation expected as a warm front passes through with freezing levels hovering around 1700 meters in a Southerly flow. Tracking of this deepening low is undetermined but seems most of the energy is staying South of our zone. Cooler temperatures and showery conditions will prevail into Sunday with a brief reprise possibly Sunday evening, freezing levels should hover around 1400 meters. Another low pressure system off the coast will arrive for Monday into Tuesday in a Southwesterly flow with moist windy conditions. Freezing levels next week look to fluctuate between 1400 - 1800 meters as a series of systems affect our zone. Will have an update on Monday.

    Relatively dry day today, most of the moisture has gone South.

    Another low heading our way Monday into Tuesday.
