FORECAST:

A cold front is exiting the area heading Southeast with cool unsettled weather in its wake. A weak ridge is developing which should bring a mix of sun and cloud to our zone this morning with more sun once the low level cloud burns off.. A Northwest flow aloft will continue today with the freezing level rising from 2400 meters to 2800 meters later tonight.  A weak trough to the North may allow for some cloud to persist on the South Coast Tuesday and Wednesday but the high will likely bring sunny weather for most of the week. As of now Thursday is looking like the warmest day of the week with mostly sunny skies. A deep upper low will bring a change on Friday or Saturday depending on the timing but next weekend is looking wet, lingering into early next week.
