    As of 07:00 Hrs this am we have mostly cloudy skies with unlimited visibility.

    Satellite image from this am shows bands of moist cloud to the North.

For the forecast, a Southwesterly flow aloft will bring mostly unsettled conditions for today with a slight chance of some intermittent showers.  A cool moist low pressure system will be parked off the coast for most of the week with unsettled weather into next weekend. Wednesday afternoon into Thursday morning is looking like the wettest period as a frontal band moves onshore. Models are not in agreement on the forecast for the September long weekend but it looks like it will be slightly cooler than normal values, with a mix of sun and cloud. Good chance the high pressure in the Pacific could bring some decent weather for the long weekend.

    Low pressure system for most of the week, with unsettled weather.

    Most of the moisture is North of our zone.

    A mix of cloud, sunny periods and chance of some intermittent showers for today.

    Low remains North for Tuesday, with a good portion of sun.

    Frontal band expected Wednesday morning, with rain in the afternoon and evening.

    Unsettled again for Saturday. Will depend on what the high does!!

    Long range model looks fairly good for Sunday.

    High pressure to the Southwest could bring decent weather for the long weekend.
