    As of 08:00 Hrs this am we have overcast skies with a few breaks and variable visibility.

     Looking very dark to the East.

For the forecast, a large upper trough to the East continues to bring unsettled weather to the area in an Easterly flow aloft switching to Northerly later today. Overcast conditions with a relatively dry air mass have spread into the area. The FL has dropped slightly but will rise to 2400 meters again this afternoon. A weak shortwave trough will pass through our area today with the chance of some showery activity, (likely this evening) but the pattern has remained fairly dry and with the present flow a few breaks are possible as well. Very spring like conditions with a continuing chance of showers over the next few days, very difficult to say how much precipitation could fall but the trend seems for it to stay fairly dry.

    Has remained dry for the past 2 days but models are still showing some showery activity!

    Looks pretty dry.

    Still the potential for some showers today into Monday.

    Flow for the next few days. Unsettled weather with the possibility of some showers.

    Low is still spinning to the East.

    Unsettled for the next few days.
