Weather Observations for October 16, 2015: taken at 06:00 Hours.

2180 meters     New station toasted by lightning last Saturday
1835 meters   +11, Winds were 15-20 KPH from the SE
1650 meters     +9, Relative Humidity 45%
  660 meters     +3, Valley Temp, Max Temp Yesterday was +14.2.

For the forecast, the high pressure system will migrate eastward today allowing some cloud into the area later this afternoon.  A weakening trough will split North and South bringing cloudy conditions to our zone for Saturday in a Southwesterly flow aloft. Still a chance of some isolated showers for Saturday but it is looking fairly dry.  As of now Sunday looks unsettled with a mix of sun/cloud and the chance of some isolated rain showers. Monday is looking like a cloudy day and light rain is forecasted into Monday night. Next week looks unsettled but more on that in Mondays post as confidence in the models is low for next week. An occluded front may bring unsettled conditions Tuesday.

    As of 07:30 this am we have mostly clear skies and unlimited visibility.

    Sunny conditions for today with clouds developing later in the day.

    Cloud will move into the area for Saturday with the chance of some isolated showers.

    Moisture heading our way Sunday but no precipitation until Monday morning.

    We can expect cloud on Monday likely moving away by Monday evening.
