For the forecast, a weakening upper level trough will bring overcast conditions to the area again today in a light Northerly flow aloft. Still a chance of some isolated intermittent showers, but the air mass is moving South and the upper low is continuing to move East. A weak upper ridge will have some drying influence in the area for Tuesday and Wednesday with unsettled weather with the chance of some sunny breaks. Another upper level low will move into our area for Thursday with the best chance of some precipitation, more on that as we get closer.

    Upper trough on our area for unsettled weather, still the chance of some showers.

    Low continues to move East, large upper level trough on the Coast.

    Mostly cloudy today.

    Weak onshore flow for Monday.

    Tuesday is unsettled with mostly cloudy conditions and possibly some sunny breaks.

    High pressure out in the Pacific will have some influence on Tuesday thru Wednesday.

    07:45 Sunday morning. Some cloudy conditions coming our way.

    18:15 Hours Sunday.

    A lot of cloud in the big picture late Sunday afternoon.

    Rain held off until the evening.

    Car show was a nice addition to the weekend.

    Always amazes me how it can go from this,  to no one in the course of a couple of hours

   18:00 Hours Sunday.
