For the forecast, air mass will dry out today with unsettled conditions in a Northeasterly flow. There is a chance of some very light intermittent showers this am with the FL hovering in the 2300 meter range by this afternoon. Good chance of some sunny breaks in the mix.  By Saturday the low to the Southeast will send more cloud our way by the afternoon with some light rain showers. The overcast wet conditions will move into Sunday with light precipitation and overcast conditions, likely the wettest day of the weekend.  Unfortunately,  Monday is also looking overcast with some showers as the low continues to spin cloud and moisture our way. Long range models are in disagreement past Sunday but it looks like the upper trough will continue to bring seasonable temperatures and typical May showers for next week.

    Low is over Southern Oregon/Northern California. Will continue to send spring like weather!!

    Low will be spinning clouds at us for a few days.

    Unsettled with some breaks as the morning progresses.
