For the forecast, a series of cool troughs will bring unsettled weather to the area for most of the week. Today we will see mostly cloudy skies with the chance of a shower later in the day. Tuesday will be similar with cloudy skies, intermittent showers and cooler temperatures. The freezing level at night will drop down to below 1800 meters this evening and Tuesday evening. A weak front will move into the area on Wednesday and Thursday with periods of light rain with the occasional break. A very weak ridge may form for Friday but the model solutions are inconsistent so there is low confidence in the forecast. The series of troughs may continue into next weekend.  More on that in Fridays post.

   As of 07:00 Hours this am we have overcast skies and unlimited visibility.

    More moisture in the area on Wednesday.
