For the forecast, the summer of upper level lows continues--a very slow moving low is passing through our zone today bringing cloudy skies in a Northerly flow aloft. The brunt of the precipitation in this system occurred last night but there is a chance of some scattered showers into Tuesday. The high pressure out in the Pacific will begin to show its influence on Wednesday with some lingering cloud but dry conditions and warming temperatures. The high will build into Saturday with another period of summer like weather. Another trough is forecasted to move into the area by Sunday.


    Slow moving low will bring cloudy skies for today.

     Low tracks Southeast into Tuesday.

    Low should be well South by Tuesday but still spinning cloud our way.

    High pushes back for Wednesday but expect some cloud development.

    High strengthens for Thursday into Saturday. Warmer temperatures can be expected.

    An upper trough is forecasted to be here by Saturday evening/ Sunday.
