For the forecast, high pressure will bring another dry day with the FL rising to 2800 meters this afternoon in a Northwesterly flow aloft. Should be mostly sunny, before a split flow dominates the weather pattern for the remainder of the week with unsettled conditions.  Wednesday a weak upper trough will bring a slight chance of some isolated showers as it pushes past the area to the East with an onshore flow. The ridge rebounds for Thursday morning with drier conditions, but with a mix of sun and cloud in the afternoon. Friday is also looking dry with unsettled conditions. The one day where we may see some precipitation is Saturday. Warmer temperatures can be expected as the week progresses.

    Mixed bag for the next few days. Highs and lows are having a bit of a dance!!

       A gaggle of highs and lows.

    On the edge Wednesday and Thursday, still very dry for this time of the year.

    Moisture creeping by on Wednesday.

    Mixed bag possible for Thursday as well.
