    Moisture out in the Pacific will find its way here later in the week.

Weather Observations for October 5, 2015: taken at 06:00 Hours.

2180 meters     +7, Winds were 10-15 KPH from the S

For the forecast, the upper level ridge will maintain mostly sunny skies for today in a Northerly flow aloft with light offshore flow. The ridge will weaken Tuesday with onshore flow and high cloud will move into our zone but dry conditions should prevail for most of the day. There is a slight chance of showers starting Tuesday evening as weak warm front moves onto the coast. Wednesday will see a strong southwesterly flow as the upper low in the North Pacific begins to send moisture our way strengthening  into the weekend. Expect showers Wednesday into Thursday with light to moderate precipitation by Friday. Will have a better handle on the weekend forecast by Friday as model consistency becomes more accurate.

    High pressure for today with an off shore flow.

    Flow will switch to light Westerly this evening.

    Low in North Pacific will send high cloud our way Tuesday.

    Moisture should reach the coast by early Wednesday.

    South westerly flow with showers into Thursday.

    Light-Moderate precipitation by Friday.

    Strong low in the North Pacific.

    Looks like a wet weekend.
