As of 07:00 hrs this am we have scattered high cloud, variable visibility and a valley stratus layer.


For the forecast, lingering cloud Tuesday morning with an upper level trough offshore to the north and the ridge rebuilding, sunny by the afternoon once the stratus layer rises and dissipates in a Southwest flow aloft.  The ridge strengthens Wednesday into Friday with slightly warmer temperatures but sunny skies. Some inconsistencies in the models for the weekend, but as of now it looks like a large weak cool trough moves onto the coast Friday night into Saturday,  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. Precipitation amounts could be minimal.



 
    A short lived slow moving  cold front Monday afternoon into Tuesday morning.

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

    High pressure Wednesday.

    Low moves down the coast with a large upper level trough moving onshore.


    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.

    That is a fairly large low.

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

    Moisture moving through the zone on Sunday into Monday.


Have lost two of my advertisers this fall so far, if anyone has any company contacts that may have an interest in placing an advertisement on the blog please e mail me at wwflann@me.com. If I cannot find enough support to generate some revenue, 5 years of hard work and archived information may come to an end. Any ideas would be appreciated!!
