Should see some good crust recovery this morning.

    As of 07:00 Hrs this am we have some scattered cloud in the distance and unlimited visibility.

For the forecast, high pressure will bring sunny skies this morning but there is a low off the coast which will send some cloud our way this afternoon in a light Westerly flow aloft. The FL will rise to the 2500 meter range for today. On Friday a high pressure to the Southeast of our zone will likely make a push into the area but the low being close we will see some cloud development and warm temperatures. Saturday is looking unsettled with a good chance of some rain showers later in the day. The showers will continue into Sunday with overcast skies and light precipitation by Sunday afternoon. Expect cool and showery conditions by early next week as an upper level low dominates the pattern, bringing near normal temperature values to the area.

    Looking dry this morning.

    Flow for today.
