For the forecast, the low continues to bring cool unstable conditions to our zone. Unsettled weather for today as the low slowly moves South this morning. A weak upper level ridge will build for Saturday with another weak front moving through Saturday evening into Sunday morning. Sunday afternoon looks unsettled with a mix of sun and cloud, possibly some showers. Monday is looking like another nice day but more on that on Monday as the models are not in agreement. Very difficult forecasting conditions with a cold low over our area this time of the year.
