Weather Observations for August 24, 2015: taken at 06:00 Hours.

2180 meters       +5, Winds were 10-20 KPH from the S
1835 meters       +8, Winds were 5-10 KPH from the SSE
1650 meters       +7, Relative Humidity 75%
  660 meters       +8, Valley Temp, Max Temp Yesterday was +26.4.

Sunrise was at 06:14 this am and sunset is at 20:14. 14 Hours of Daylight.

    As of 07:00 Hours this am we have scattered high cloud and unlimited visibility.

    High pressure still holding. Low will begin to slide South this week.

For the forecast, the upper trough off the Pacific Northwest coast will maintain dry weather for our area into later in the week with a Southwest flow aloft. Clouds lingering this morning should dissipate later this morning for sunny weather into Wednesday. We could see some spin off cloud by Wednesday as the upper low to our North begins to move southward well offshore but close enough to have some affect. By Thursday the low will begin to move Eastward with a good chance of cloudier conditions on Thursday. The models are in disagreement when moisture will reach our area but we could see showers as early as Thursday evening but more likely by early Friday morning. Friday through Sunday could be fairly wet, more on that in Friday's post.

    Low pressure in the Gulf of Alaska will slowly move our way this week. Sundays Position.

    Position of the low today.

    High pressure will continue to bring nice weather into Tuesday.

    Could see some cloud in our zone from low by Wednesday.

    Low offshore on Thursday, may bring showers to our zone by Thursday evening or early Friday.

    Wet Friday through the weekend.

    Looking moist at the beginning of next week. Much can happen in one week.
