    As of 07:00 hrs this am we have broken cloud and unlimited visibility. There is an inversion.

    Update--Satellite Image as of 08:30 am shows the front winning out. Getting cloudier this am.

For the forecast, unsettled- lingering cloud early this morning dissipating quickly as a surface ridge of high pressure builds in the area bringing warm temperatures to the area as an offshore flow continues. The front is speeding up so there is a chance of cloud building during the day as well, the high may loose out. The flow will switch Monday afternoon allowing the onshore flow to bring in a weak cold front, chance of some spotty rain showers to the area Monday night.  Likely some cloud Tuesday morning with an upper level trough offshore and the ridge rebuilding, sunny by the afternoon.  The ridge strengthens Wednesday into Friday with slightly cooler temperatures but sunny skies. Some inconsistencies in the models for the weekend, but as of now it looks like a cool trough moves onto the coast Friday into Saturday, with a cool moist front bringing snow to the upper elevations. Snow line could drop to mid mountain elevations by Saturday into Sunday. More on that mid week, will post an update on Wednesday.


    High builds for Monday am. Some lingering cloud. Cold front moves onshore later in the pm.

    A short lived cold front Monday afternoon into Tuesday morning.

    Some lingering cloud Tuesday morning with the ridge building for the afternoon.

    High pressure Wednesday.

    Another nice day Thursday with the low getting closer.

    Low should bring cloud to the area by Friday. Will update forecast for the weekend on Wed/Thurs.

    Upper Level trough pushing through on Saturday into early next week. Cooler temps as well.

    Moisture moving through the zone on Sunday into Monday.
