   Overcast with variable visibility this morning as of 07:00 Hrs.

For the Forecast, the moderate rain should ease to showers this morning prior to the next pulse of moisture mid morning with strong winds and heavy precipitation, as the strong surface low associated with a cold front moves onto the coast. This system will dissipate this afternoon with cloudy conditions and light precipitation into Friday morning. The freezing level should come down briefly to around 1800 meters by this evening then back up to well above the local peaks Friday morning. The high pressure aloft developing Friday will bring the FL back down to around 1500 meters by the evening. Warm air in the Southerly flow will cause the FL to fluctuate from 1400 meters to 2000 meters over the weekend with a mix of sun and cloud. Next week is looking to start off sunny and warm. Inversion for early next week is a possibility .

    Strong Surface low should arrive mid morning with strong winds along the coast.

    We are in for a fairly wet event this morning.
